Nice twin room with ensuite and kitchenette, well set up for 2 people to make basic meals, really needs to have a chopping board though. No a/c and room was quite stuffy, with the windows open there was a lot of noise from the street. About 10-15min walk from the train uphill. Area seems pretty dodgy at night, I wouldn't recommend lone travelers walking through the area at night. Good security, front door always locked. TV/ping pong/football table downstairs.


Everything would be great, you must pay additional 4 euro for Youth International Hostel card (sic!).


The hostel was very easy to find and it is right next to the train station! Within less than five minutes you will be right in the old town and the beautiful walking area next to the river where I recommend to do evening walks or morning runs ;) Very helpful and friendly staff! Quiet room! Gi there! Best place!


I missed that part info about hostel and facilities , nothing was said to me and that was disapointment because i would like to use breakfast there and because i thought you are not doing it i went out very earliy to find some food, also some info about bin collection, rubish outside my room were waiting 3 days to be finally collected . I think is good hostel , i will recommend you. Thanks for accommodation.


The residence itself is pretty nice, looks brand new and safe BUT the neighborhood doesn't look that safe. Very weird people passing by the street, impossible to park near the hostel which doesn't make it very convenient if you have a car and don't want to pay the 10€ parking fee or can't because the parking is full.

Very good hostel. Ok location during day. Use caution at night. Building is very clean and safe.


Good hostel and helpful staff based round student accomodation. Area round about could be described as 'sketchy' and might be intimidating to some visitors but this is localised and there is normally a police presence so, as an older male, I felt quite safe. Quite near to transport links.
