The guy at the reception desk could have been a bit friendlier, the hostel itself is average but the location is good.


This is one of the worst backpacker I have been to. Reception guy wasn't very welcoming, seemed to be interrested on the money only. Room provided wasn't what we have booked, room was dirty, one other person in the room that was actually living there and was very messy, stinky clothes everywhere. Only one blanket which was dirty as well. Small kitchen, only two small fridges which wasn't enough. Few good points though, good location near the station and dvd that we can watch in the tv room.


The hostel has a cozy feeling and rooms are allright
