Photos are outdated and show a much cleaner/newer hostel. One shower and 2 toilets for the entire hostel (2 dorms of 9 beds and one private of up to 5) so always a line for the bathroom and they feel a bit grubby. Other than that, place is cheap and location is good. Met some really cool people while there so the atmosphere made it an enjoyable experience. Dorm rooms did feel crowded though and people always had their bags all over the floor so quite messy. Also don't accept credit card


Great hostel! One of the rooms is pretty small but still livable. It's a great vibe in a spectacular location! You can walk anywhere and it's right on the metro station to get to the bus station and train station! Would definitely recommend.


Municipality tax, late chack/in tax, bag tax, breathe tax..). Here you will find all kind of taxes to rob you. Not good people work here. For this price (hostel and all extra taxes) you can have much better, and with a nice boss. Chek other place.


Please be aware of an additional 2 euro per night charge which not shown in the price on the website!! This seemed underhand to me.

Small hostel which makes easy to socialise. Good wifi and nice location


Pretty fun stay. I like small hostels like this one that feel more like someone's appartment. I think I just got stuck with a boring bunch of people there at the time though. I'd recommend it.


Only one shower for everyone!!! That's my biggest complaint. Everything was amazing and it was so close to the center and to the Jewish district


Overall a good hostel with friendly atmosphere! The only negative was only two toilets and one shower for all the guests! Otherwise good service, good location, spacious rooms!


vraiment sympa comme auberge ! cest pas cher et cest super bien situé aucun transport à payer, tout ce fait à pied ! good nightLife!!


Strange hostel - only one (or maybe two?) rooms with ten beds in it. More like someone's house than a hostel. Bathroom is a bit unclean and not much atmosphere. Warmest room I have ever slept in, ended up sleeping with the window open to the busy street. Fine for the price.


good location, close to metro/bus station and bar area. environment and facilities are also good


Great place, great atmosphere. I recommend to everyone.
