staff was kind and helpful clean rooms and facilities bar - no towels in room when arriving - no heating at rooms. ( staff told that they have problems with oil/water boiler but most likely it was turned off because we were the only ones staying there ) - also no hot water/ shower - sounds and music from bar can distrupt night sleep. - the door blocking entrance from bar to the hostel floors can be opened without keys, by sliding a hand to the other side of the door from a small cap

Had a great stay here the bar is great and the place so clean and just fun all round


Great pub/hostel with lots of good cheap local beer on tap. Located right in the old town close the the train and bus station. They had new beds with new mattresses, lockers for everyone in the rooms. Everything was nice and new. Will be staying there again on my next trip for sure.


Great location,


Staffs are helpful. Location is excellent, nearby bus station and in the old town. But you cant sleep at weekend, because the drunkard are very noise.
