A little bit far from downtown but right by a tram stop so easy to get around! Nice rooms.


I was very glad to stay there. The owner is great: very helpful, always ready to explain what I needed. The location is very good, there is a shopping mall nearby, and metro station and tram stop.


great value for the money, not too far from the sites if you do not mind walking. very friendly but eclectic grouo of guests. fscilities a bit ratchet but usable.


The staff were nice. A socket for each bed, big lockers, and great showers. I really like the common room with comfortable sofas, pool table, Foosball and board games. The kitchen seemed nice and well equipped, but I didn't use it. It's near the metro and trams, but is in a bit dodgy area of district 8. The room is small for a 6 bed dorm, and soundproof can be improved. Couldn't connect to WiFi 80% of the time, and had no connection in our room. The reception closes at 11pm.


Basic hostel. Just a place to rest your head. Not too far nor too close to main attractions - expect a decent 25-30min walk. Security lockers are good a massive size so packs fit easily. Poor shower/bathroom facilities. Wifi very sporadic in the rooms. Very little atmosphere when we were there, but not sure if this is the norm. You can probably find similar accomodation for lower price in the city.

No real atmosphere and it seemed to just be locals maybe living in he hostel? I'm not sure, but there wasn't another traveller in my room over he 3 days I was there.


It is very good hostel, rooms were clean and common areas as well. Location was great and staff was very helpful and friendly. I spend there nice week. I can recommend that place some other travelers;-)
