Nice modern hostel. Large locker space, plenty of sockets. Slight walk out of town but it's just straight along the river which is nice.


It doesn't look like a Hostel. It is far from the city Center, but I knew this In advance. Then don't sell food and the closest restaurant doens't have a very godo price. For one night is fine.


A bit pricey, but the bed is qute comfy though. Far away from train station but there is a bus no6 that stops 5 minutes from the place. Very clean.

Very far from city center. Nice staff but not any amenities (kitchen, communal areas). Basically a hostel stuffed in the basement of a conference center.


If you like staying in a cramped basement and being woken up at 7 by heavy machinery outside your window then this is the place for you. Also I booked a room with an ensuite, but it didn't have one.


Really beautiful staff who helped willingly!!


Pros - Excellent room for a hostel. I think this place is regularly a school dorm residence and it was 10 out of 10. Big room, washroom and shower. View of the mountains, the river and the fortress out the window. About a 15min walk from the main station not the closest but still doable. Excellent kitchen with a fridge that has your own locker compartment. Great for couples not for single travelers, it seems more like a hotel. Cons-distance to old town, cost of bikes, construction next door.


It is very clean and the facilities are great. It has no atmosphere whatsoever but the rooms are big and have desks and tv's in them. Don't get the breakfast - very expensive for what you get and the kitchen staff are rude.


Very, very nice clean rooms. Although 30 some Euros a night is a little steep, it's just the price of the area and you're certainly getting your money's worth (although no air conditioning). The Old Town is a thirty minute stroll along the River, or you can take the bus which is about five minutes away. All in all, it made our time very relaxing and enjoyable and was the perfect way to end two weeks of back-packing Europe.


Not a great place for solo travellers. There is a shared kitchen but it doesn't really give you a chance to socialise with others. But the staff were lovely and the rooms were very clean


Overall a good experience. Staff were friendly & helpful. The rooms were spacious and very clean including a decent size bathroom which also was very clean! Wouldn't suggest coming here if you're a solo traveller like myself. No atmosphere and was really hard to get a conversation out of fellow guests. Wouldn't recommend the breakfast. Quite overpriced considering you get the same for free in other hostels. Also a bit far out from Old Town


It was pretty good staying with nice roommates but location was not so good.

We arrived late at night and they took care of everything. Some of the nicest rooms I've seen in a while. Only a few minor downsides, atmosphere was a little hard to achieve given that many people were families and Internet did not work well in the rooms only in the lobby. These are small gripes as the security, location, and quality were all top notch.


The room including bathroom and toilets are clean. It is noisy at 6 a.m. due to the construction site nearby. The wifi connection in the basement is not good but much better in the common area. The lockers are big enough in the room.


The staffs are really friendly. I met a lady who worked there by chance when I asked for directions and she guided me there since she was on the way. I cant remember her name but she is supposed to work there for three weeks but her friendliness is warm!

Good value although location is a bit far away from the old town (30min walk)


Nice rooms and washing facilities. One of staff members were rude when asking for things. One staff member lied to our face when asking for change for washing machine by saying she had none after the other staff member was already trying to give it to us and proceeded to hand change to another woman. Had to go out in a thunderstorm to get change. Overall positive and enjoyed our stay.


It is amazing that you can leave your luggage there after checking out! The staff was absolutely great and helpful :) rooms were big and clean.


The hostel has apparently moved locations and is now pretty far away from the central area. When I booked the hostel, the reviews I read said it was a short walk from the town center.. it's now about a 35 minute walk. Not really a hostel to meet fellow travelers at.


Poor internet in the room and no place to charge eletronic equipments near the bed.
