My swimming pant and swimming caps have disapeared after i leave the hostel, forgetting them in the room.


The hostel was ok for one night stay, bu there is barely any hostel atmosphere as I am used to it - you don not meet up and just get into a random conversation - seems more like the place to stay and store your stuff, Other bummer: Wifi was not free and very weak, only available in the halls... But very clean and well maintained!


No keys to the rooms (open room doors 24h a day) do not support the feeling of security. The seven bed dormitory was to small for seven people in one room! (unfortunately that was the case). Besides, reaching our room we had to go through some other room with guests, what wasn't comfortable neither for them nor for us. Staff was nice and location is good as well, but because of the above mentioned I wouldn't recommend it.

The receptionist İ've met was really friendly and helpful. İ felt like we are comrades or sth. Realt thanks for that. Atmosphere is nice 7bed dorm has some security issiues. but the location it self is in a securr place and


Excellent hostel! Staff very friendly and helpful.


The hostel was fine. It was nice and clean. The only things i didn't like was the fact that there was no lock on the door of the dorm and the fact that you had to pay for the wifi.


A good and clean hostel and also not far from the central railway station. A very nice and well-equipped kitchen. An interesting building with a special atmosphere.


Breakfast isn't included, either is WiFi. Nothing really special about the hostel. It seemed like mostly older couples were there, using it as a cheap alternative to a hotel. Not a good place to meet backpackers, but it's spacious and clean. Within walking distance to everything.


Hostel is cool. Everything was good accept WiFi. 1 euro pro hour and it was good only in the kitchen and hallway. Nevertheless hostel is GREAT!


The room is nice and cozy, and its good to have a real kitchen. Thin wall that you can hear people talk everything next room. It was construction outside, so a bit noisy in the morning. Beware that the price is not it said to be , they have their own pricing according to their website. When you found out you need to pay additional money not be told, even its not a huge amount, but still make people feel bad.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hello, just one question to your comment. You write about "additional money" - what do you mean with this? You paid 13,00 EUR/night what is our website price - exactly spoken we could have charged you 13,05 EUR as your Hostelworld-booking said. But then you will find on the hostelworld-information for OPERA Hostel too that bedlinen and towels is not included unless you stay for 3 or more nights, this is what you paid an extra 2,50 EUR for.
