The hostel is like a hotel. The rooms were very clean, the towels are changed, and bathrooms are cleaned daily. Don't be fooled by the hallway and very tiny elevator, it was a great place. If u want to stay closer to the museums it is in a great area, nice place to sit and relax. It did not have a hostel atmosphere and the staff were polite but did not make many suggestions or recommendations so have your travel aps ready. Outside of that I loved the place and would totally recommend it.


Great rooms. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Easy access to the museums, trams near by to go to the city centre. I would recommend a stay here.

The room was lovely, as were the facilities however the customer service at the front desk was disgraceful. The lady was rude and we ended up waiting over an hour to get in to our room when she had told us it was going to be 10 minutes.


Located on a quiet street near lots of museums but a bit of a walk from the centre. Room was fine but occupied by very noisy teenagers. The hostel caters more to the younger age group. A simple breakfast was fine. 8 bed female dorm had an ensuite. Rooms had small lockers with a number code. Small fridge for personal use. Staff were fine. Luggage can be stored for free.


We were lucky with our stay in this hostel as we had a really good group of people in our room! The staff were friendly and helpful especially one of the male members as he stood outside when we got lost arriving at the hostel late at night. However, when we asked if we could store our luggage in the room all we received was a look and our bags were thrown into the room. But that was only a minor detail as the stay was really good and we would definitely return! The location was a bonus.
