The Loftstel did a great job of trying to create a family type atmosphere. One girl had a birthday and everyone got together and had a little birthday party for her. Very thoughtful and kind! As far as staff, Tom is very welcoming and friendly; a true example of what hospitality should be like. The only downfall of the place is that is somewhat crowded in the rooms but the facilities (shower, toilet, etc.) were in working order.

The hostel is pretty spacious and the WiFi worked great! The staff were proactively friendly and helpful during the course of my stay. It was clean, the bath room was nice, the linen smelled good.

It felt really like your your grandma's house when all your relatives came to visit. It's cozy and comfortable. The rooms and bathrooms were kept clean. The staff did a great job maintaining the order in the house. There were a lot of guests but it felt really nice. If you like meeting new people then you should definitely give this place a try.

The people there were very nice. And the place was very near where I needed to be.

Not a typical hostel, but with long term stay people. However, there are regular activities and it is really fun to make an effort to join the group.

It's strange, I've never loved and hated a place so much. It's clean, secure and cosy and really forces you to interact and make friends. However, there are a ton of rules and at times I felt like I was being treated more like a child than an adult. The day I checked out, I went down to have breakfast to find that the staff had already cleared my food out if the fridge and thrown it away (this was before the checkout time at 11). Lots of annoying little things but overall a nice play to stay.
