The prices are low, I can understand why ! The hostel is not very clean. My room was so tiny, unbelievable! If you want to rest, don't go there, the place is very loudy.

The place doesn't seem like a normal tourist hostel, rather a place of staying for gastarbaiters that stay there for a long time, it doesn't feel like a nice atmosphere. They sleep at the day and are very "active" (loud) in the night. Everything is so tight, showers and toilet for example, you really have to struggle with using everything. For plus - very good location, very close to the train station and very comfortable beds.

The only good in this hostel is its location near the central railway station. Stuff was friendly and polited. But: - there was no hot water in shower!!! and no doors, you can only use shower blind - so I feel very uncomfortable while taking a shower! - there were no clean mugs at the kitchen; - it was too noisy to sleep starting from 9 a.m, though we had separated room for two people. We heard everything was happening in corridor; - carpet in room was wet when we arrived (uncomfortable)

Just a bed for the night as the facilities are poor and there is no common area. The staff seem to have no problem coming through the dorm repeatedly in the night to get to the smoking balcony. Cheap and okay location but I wouldn't book an extended stay here.

It is not just a hostel, it feels like home. Atmosphere is so friendly and all guests and administration are very polite. Railway station is close enough to walk on foot but you will not be bothered by hearing the trains. I recommend it!
