This hostel is everything what a hostel should be: minimalistic, user friendly, clean, with good public transportation connections to the centre and has friendly price. I've been here before and I intend to come back.

Everything was great, but I couldn't lock my things because the drawer lock part was broken. I also didn't find any tissues beside the tap and that annoyed me so much. because everytime I use the tap. I had to go to the toilet outside the room and get some tissues. The staff were very helpful and friendly, but the atmosphere was a bit gloomy; I can't find a reason for that, but that's just how I felt. The price was the best, but still can be cheaper for the service received.
the location of hostel is far from center but u can get tram from center direct in front of hostel, they charge 3.5 euro extra and there is no wifi in rooms, even in lounge its too slow. the bathroom r not so clean. but the positive side is that they serve breakfast and the rooms r for two person. so its quite cheap as compare to other hostels.
1. Staff (specially the old stupid guy) is very rude. 2. They inform you that breakfast will last till 10 am or 12 in noon on some special occasions (like new year) but if you visit the breakfast hall at 9 am still most of the breakfast is finish and no body is filling it again. 3. They ask for your identity card in guarantee for electronic key. I told them that I can't give my residence card and driving license but I am ready to pay the cost of key in advance but they were not agree to this
Ok guys If you wanna be in an hostel safe, clean and with a good breakfast included, go to this hostel But if you're looking for a good atmosphere , close to the center and friendly helpful staff: don't go to this hostel
It is cheap, clean, good breakfast and easy to reach by bus! Overall a good stay. I just advoce to take a towel with you.
If you want to stay cheap, this is the hostel for you. If, however, you don't mind spending a bit more, I advise you to do so. Overall we had a good stay but the staff was quite unfriendly, the rooms cold and not very cozy. Not much privacy because on a daily basis staff enters to change dustbins. We did like how the walls were thick so we couldn't hear the children staying there. The underground is closeby and has good connections. The breakfast is good but sometimes a bit early for a vacation
