Great location! The female dorm was quite large with a table and plenty of room for your bags, plus large lockers in the room. Large, secure room for bag storage upon check out. Atmosphere was calm, quiet beer drinking and reading in the lobby. Families are allowed. Cleanliness was fine, but not outstanding.

Good location, staff friendly and helpful. Understanding RE: a late check out. Hostel lacked any party vibe which was disappointing but facilities were as expected and good place to rest your head in a great city.

The hostel is nice. I like that is close to the center. The breakfast included is nice. At some point I thought they didn't really clean the room, just part of the toilet, but not the showers or sink. Not very dirty but not clean either. It has comfortable beds and their electricity system uses a lot of technology, someone in the room needs to connect their card so the lights, shower and plugs work. Oww ... no kitchen to be used by yourself.

Great rooms and location. Not much atmosphere, at least when I was there.

Fantastic location in proximity to the city centre, friendly staff, clean rooms. The bar has great beers, but closes slightly early. Really friendly atmosphere. They have a luggage room where you can store your bag before and after you've checked in and out, which does lock. However, it's just a room with everyone's stuff in it — had no problems though. Overall, would definitely recommend.

Very big hostel, good location (though there is another even more central), small rooms, nice common room on the ground floor but no kitchen to make your own food. Good thing is breakfast is included in the price but check in starts at 15:00 so of you get there earlier you will have to wait to get in your room. Good value for money
