The only downfall of the hostel is that it is in a sketchy location so you don't want to go by yourself there if you are a girl. Other than that, it was great. Huge room, very clean, nice stuff.
Sadly, the location is not in the best area of the city, and with construction it was difficult to find. The building felt like an old hospital and not as personal or cozy as many other hostels I stayed at. The front desk staff were helpful, but not as engaging or overly helpful as other places I have stayed. It was close to the main train station.

The hostel has very friendly and patient staff. But the location is quite a bit outside of the city center. It is however next to the train station going to the airport. It depends on what you want, if you want to view the city by day, you can take a short bus to the center, if you wan't to go out at night, this place is too far away (we tried the one bar that was open, called the piper, which was a lot of fun but not really some place for party).
Clean and quiet rooms. Wifi is not free even if 1 euro per day is very acceptable.
Worst place I've stayed on my travels. I walked to the receptionist and he looked at me like I was Michael Moore trying to get into a Wall Street bank! The doors in the rooms were broken as a roommate got locked in the bathroom at 3am and the receptionist just told us not to lock the door with no apology or reason for the distruption!
About 4km for the train station in a nondescript area where a woman would probably not feel secure alone at night. The place is clean, although it could use some renovation.
Concerning the property, there were ladybugs in my bed. The location of this hostel is not agreeable, especially if travelling by foot. Otherwise, the staff was nice.
Not in city center. A bit confusing to get there from train station. But you will survive. The hostel is a lovely place and locked up at night. But many immigrants wandering at night in the neighborhood. So be careful if you arrive late. Room clean, nice staff， good value for money. Nice place to stay if you plan you trip ahead.
I'm a frequent traveler and have lots of hostel experience. Open011 is a fantastic hostel; right up with the best. Scores high marks for all categories.
