Excellent staff who went out of their way to help! Clean and tidy! Could have done with a proper shower curtain to stop the water. Location was great! Definitely stay here again! Dont be afraid by first impressions - looks way better on the inside!


could use another shower plus walking through one dorm to get to another a bit of an issue.

Dear Corinna, Thank you for your kind review, we hope to see you again soon! : ) Best regards, Zsófi from Ginkgo


Very calming and friendly atmosphere, I really enjoyed my stay. Rooms are really spacious. Wifi works only in common room, but well. Free tea and coffee. I felt really safe and a bit at home. Fellow travellers were respectful and quiet at night. Nice staff. Good location, walking distance from many historical sights.
