Rooms had lockers. Facilities were alright. Could get very noisy at night though.
The entire hostel smelled weird, and the room was so cramped I literally couldn't walk through. Staff weren't friendly and reception was closed more often than not as the girls "had a break". Cleaner woke me up coming into the room at 11am cleaning and talking on her phone. More of a long term stay hostel for students or people between housing than for a traveller. Not a social atmosphere. No wifi in the room, and it was spotty in the common area as well. Good kitchen though.
This was my first time in a hostel and this was definitely much better than I expected. I had zero issues regarding cleanliness like other reviewers did, in light that it looked very well maintained. The staff wasn't extremely outgoing but they got the job done efficiently. Security isn't an issue as long is your bag is small enough to fit into the lockers (most backpacks should work). My main issue was that our room needed better ventilation, it got quite hot and stuffy.
Good location, very clean! Rooms where very stuffy with no ventilation but the mattress was nice a thick!
Impossible to sleep at night, super hot temperature No windows in the room, no ventilation system Awful staying, not recommended
They provide free coffee. I think it is a very good thing in this expensive city. The location is considered near to city when compared to others hostel. Recommended! :)
Great hostel, didn't have any major issues!
The rooms are very warm since there are no windows in the rooms, the lockers need a lock pad so if you dont carry one then you have to buy it in the hostel because they dont lend them which is pitty, it is not allowed to drink in the hostel which for some people its sad...
For the price you are paying, it does not get better. Location was great. Check in/out procedure standardized and efficient. Beds uncomfortable, but conditioning on the price it is what one would expect.

Overall this hostel was fine. Ok location, friendly staff. However the major issue is security. Rooms were often left unlocked (not the hostels fault) but as we left at 5am we were stopped by a girl who had just wandered in off the street (not a guest) who asked if our bed was free because she was tired, to which she then went into our room. With no staff on call we couldnt do anything. Kitchen is a disaster zone. A hostel that size needs more facilities.
The hostel is okay to stay at, but that's that. I found the hostel to be understaffed. Long lines for every question you had to ask and no time for a chat or some information about the city (it was high-season though). Very good kitchen and enough bathrooms, but a pitty you had to pay for everything seperately, even for sheets.
No window in the room! Smelly and hot, six bunk beds were crammed into a tiny room barely larger than a closet. Two showers were out of order. No toilet paper in one bathroom, and it never was replaced. This hostel has a terrible atmosphere and nobody speaks to each other in the common room. Would never recommend to stay here, disgusting experience.

Security was an issue. Anybody could walk into the hostel when there was nobody at the reception. The kitchen was good and you could use the facilities before checking time if you had a reservation, including the shower.
I already gave them feedback that I was very happy except for the exceptionally squeeky bunk bed, both upper and lower bunk would squeek with any movement. I also forgot to ask them if there was any association Hostelling International which would have been an opportunity to be given an extra 10% discount. When I got to Montanna Hostel in Bergen they asked me and instigated my enrollment into Hostelling International. Interhostel may not have that association.

When you're inside the hostel it's easy to lose track of time because everything is very dimly lit and the whole building doesn't have a lot of windows (or clocks). Where I'm from all rooms are required to have windows so this was hard for me to get used to. Other than that, everything was fine.
If you're looking for a cheap to stay and don't care about the rest, you'll be fine with interhostel Personally, I expected a bit more and I really didn't enjoy my stay there. I found the atmosphere quite weird: other poeple were overall not very friendly and I couldn't meet poeple to eat or to go out with. Also, when they say the check in is at 14.00, they're really not kidding.. I arrived at 13:40 and the lady asked me to wait till 14:00, although she obviously didn't have much to do...
Nice place to stay, the common area is not so big, but you still manage to met some people or have a chat. I liked that they reant bikes, although not the best ones....but is still ok. Few bathrooms for so many people.
Value for money, good location (easy walk from the railway station). Overall clean and secure hostel. The 6 bed dorm without proper AC was too small so the room's air got a bit stuffy and it was hot inside. You have to pay extra for sheets. Nice atmosphere and cool decoration.
Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Facilities were amazing, staff friendly and great atmosphere. Its a must.
