Good hostel, but the atmosphere was a little bit boring. The location was not good, but the staff was nice.

Kitchen smells weird and is poorly equipped (only two spoons for example). The rooms are otherwise nice, but many of the lockers are broken so you can't lock them. Staff is nice and location is good.

I did not like this hostel at all. There was no atmosphere in the "lounge", no lockers in the rooms, and no storage locker for your bags after checkout. I did not feel very safe, the building was old and In a sense creepy. The staff were the best part since they were at least nice.

Wonderful hostel!! Clean, friendly staff 24/7, kitchen and laundry use, and the bathrooms in the rooms are really nice!! There isn't a bar or anything attached to hostel so it's a bit more on the mellow side, but nothing wrong with that!! Convenient location and could easily walk to everything. Enjoyed my stay here.

My room was cramped, it was the size of a hotel double room with 2 singles and a bunk in it. The kitchen was okay but had few pots and pans. It also needs clearer signage telling people to clean, the jouvile sign was not getting the point across and it was often a mess.

Liked that the kitchen can be used in the morning and night! We stayed in a room for 4 women, it seemed like a private room adapted as a hostel, still nice, the bathroom was just for us 4. 20-30min walking from the cathedral, but I think it's a good location still :) Staff really helpful. Confortable beds!

This place is just okay comparing same chain hostels in other cities like Brussels or Frankfurt. They hv strange policy of not bringing outside alcohol n u hv to buy from them for higher than normal price. As drinking outside alcohol wasn't allowed in rooms as well, this rule made no sense to me at all and it was just to charge the guests more considering their Bar is more like waiting area. location was bit away from attractions. Water was not draining properly in Bathroom :(
