Reviews on website made me very unsure. So i only booked two nights however I wish i booked more time it was great staff so lovely such a nice coffee shop to chill in. rooms pretty good sheets were just average. but it was easy to find with from central station only one stop away by tram i wish i walked!!


The distopia hostel/hotel b&b . What ever they want to call them selves . Is one of the worst places i have ever been. The showers are bad . And the front desk and or coffee shop is only open from 18 in the evening. So if your checking in early it has to be done in bobs hostel, wich wouldnt be a bad thing if the staff there knew there job... it took them more than an hour to check me in and it was really quite and dead ... anyway make sure you miss this one. Plus the owner is not nice


This hostel was one of the cheaper ones we found and we chose it for its location. The bad things: there isn't a kitchen so bear that in mind. It gets bloody hot in the rooms and if you're in a street facing room then it's super loud when you open a window for fresh air. A pair of earplugs and this was fine. The stairs are pretty damn precarious. I had no problem with them but they're super steep and narrow. There's a 20 euro deposit for the keys. Other than that it reall was a fine hostel.


The bed was fine and the staff were friendly. However the showers were dirty and they were only hot half of the time. The steps were very steep so difficult to access. And there were no facilities other than a bed, so we had to spend a lot of money providing food etc. positive though? The wifi did reach our rooms!


By the time we've got there, we've been told that we wouldn't be able to check in until 4:30 pm for an unknown reason. At the booking time, we'd been informed that check-ins were possible from 9:00 am onwards. Eventually we'd to look for another hostel since we were dead tired.
