I met some friends but The fridge was too disgusting. An okay hostel


It has an excellent location and the prices for the beds are quite cheap and the balance quality/price is great! Though if u are to choose a double room, I don't believe this ratio is so visible and I believe if you choose this option it might not even be worthy.

Nice and friendly stuff. But the kitchen and the ten bed dorm is really smal and narrow. Still I would go there again because of the friendly stuff, the perfect location and the good value for money!


everything is excellent except that the wifi on the top floor we lived was poor


Right in the center of town, great facilities, free breakfast :-) everything you want ! Plus the keys to open the door are awesome, you feel like you're entering a spaceship ^^


Can see the amortization since last year, but still a very-very good hostel!


Stayed there only for very short time. But I can say that the staff was very friendly and helpful and also the location is the best you can have.


This hostel is really centric. Easy access to the metro and many small restaurants. From there, you can easily walk all the city ! I dont have the name of this lovely girl at the reception (she was dark hair...) lol. She was so perfect, smilling and nice. She gave me good recommendations for cheap restaurants and free walking tours ! PS: make sure the window is properly closed at night. Except if you like listenning people singing at 1 am. :)


Very stylish hostel, easy enough to find, nicely located.
