We had a triple room "ensuite" on the 1st night. But the toilet was outside of the room. It was a bit surprising to know that. On the 2nd night we moved to another room with shared bathroom on the 4F. The bathroom was clean & tidy, it was much better than on the 1st night. Despite that, the location is perfect. It's in the center of the city. The restaurants are just down there at the door.
Got an email the day before saying no checkins between 12:30 and 5pm b/c they were spraying for pests--paid to check luggage at the train station (we got in at 12:40) and wasted a day (no map, no idea what to do). At 5pm, sign on the door had changed from 5pm to 7pm. When checked in, our room was okay, but there was a dead cockroach in the next-door bathroom (which was disgusting anyway). Thankfully there was another, remodeled toilet nearby. Nobody even apologized for the hassle. Don't bother.
Great hostel! fabulous floors and rooms! love it!
