It was all very typical hostel stuff, but I got bed bug bites from my stay :/


Good location and fair price.


Great, busy place. The lockers were fairly secure, the bed comfy enough. Just be sure to bring your earplugs as the other guests and people outside on the street can be loud.


The location was great, it was closed to the train station and to the citycenter aswell. Just be carefull, they charge you extra for leaving your staff after 2pm.


My friend and I were there for only one night so it was a great place to simply crash! The staff were extremely nice and pretty helpful providing a map and suggestions of places to visit!


For a quiet and fuss free stay I'd definitely recommend this hotel. It's not too easy to meet people here and there was trouble with the drainage of one of the toilets but the place was clean and was nice and bright. I appreciated the natural sunlight coming in! The staff were friendly and there's not much to complain about. Not bad for what you're paying for.


Great location. Right in the city centre meatr the monuments and very close to the main train station. The wifi was good and staff were polite. It was a quite hostel with guests of all ages

It was pretty meh. No kitchen just a hallway with a microwave and mini fridge across from the bathroom doors. Bathrooms were standard but the floors were always wet and then collected shoe dirt within an hour after cleaning. Nowhere to lock and store bags and I found a bug in my bed. But a sink it the rooms which was nice and a good location. Overall it was fine but a bit expensive for what you got


The hostel's staff was so friendly. A cupboard had the lock and they also had a refrigerator for you. Toilet' facility was so good, also they had hair dryer for you. The location for this hostel is really good.


It was very cheap and had good location, the facilities were very poor. The bathrooms were not very good, and there never seemed like they were being kept up. Not the best hostel ever, but it was a very close walk to everything.

Overall it was not bad, except for the light of the room and the stairs to get to the hostel.
