had a great stay at Palmers. After our GPS got us very lost, the amazing lady at the desk came with us to help us find a park close by, gave us tips on where to park for our time there and was always offering to help us with anything else we asked. Thankyou so much! We had a private room and it was like a mini apartment. Spotlessly clean. Id suggest some ear plugs as the street noise is pretty loud and old town is about 10 min walk but very cheap and reg tram out the front.

Thank you very much for this kind review, it was a pleasure to help :) p.s there are free ear plugs at the reception :) Hope to host you again, until then, enjoy :) PL team


We asked the staff a lot of questions and they were really helpful to us which was great. We stayed in a private room with our own bathroom and it was really clean and the furniture was great - like a small New York apartment!

Thank you for this kind review, we are happy that we could help with the questions and that you were happy with the help :) Hope to host you and your friend will stay with us again! Until then :) PL team


Good hostel right by train station


Close to the train station, lovely staff, good wifi, extremely comfortable beds! I stayed in a room facing the tram line and stop lights, but it really was no bother as I always travel with an eye mask and ear plugs. The coffee machine at reception was outstanding! I really enjoyed my stay!


Close to the railway station, so a good option if you're just stopping for the night.


The room was very cute and beautiful for the cheap! Also the staff-girl was very friendly! Awesome hostel!

Thank you for this great review :) We are happy that you were satisfied with the hostel and service, that is what we are here for :) Hope to host you again! PL team


My gf and I only stayed here for one night, but we really enjoyed it. The staff was very friendly. On the day we were leaving we got to speak to the owner, who was a very nice gentleman. We talked about the hostel business and he was more than happy to converse with us for over an hour. We stayed in the private apartment which was very nice, much more than we needed, and very affordable.

Ok hostel good location nice big lockers. Shame about the very loud tram line directly in front of the hostel even with the shutters and double glaze windows closed it was still very loud not great if your a light sleeper.

Thank you for writing this review, we appreciate your time. Unfortunately there is not much else we can do about the sound, we have put in soundproof windows, there are free ear plugs at the reception, and you can always ask the receptionist to put you in the room not facing the street, if it is available. That is the minus of being on such a great location which is very well connected with public transportation to the parts of the city. We hope to host you again in a more quiet room :) PL team


Grt hostel with super rooms & atmosphere..only that the tram noise is little annoying at night..

Thank you very much for this review, you and your family were great guests! We hope to host you again some day and make your stay here as comfortable as this one! PL team


Clean bathroom, great kitchen and common area. But my mixed dorm was facing the traffic light. It was very loud and you should close the window otherwise the sound will wake you up at 5 or 6 in the morning.


Good place next to the train- and buss station. The street outside can be a bit noisy as the trams pass, but close the window and it's OK. They also have AC, so a closed window in the summer is no problem.
