The hostel itself is quite nice & is a good location. I was quite dissapointed with a number of staff members who I found to be rude & unhelpful on a number of occassions.

Pros: Very good location, easy to find from main train station, and central location within the Old Town area. Facilities were also pretty good, and the provided breakfast was better than most Hostel's provide. Cons: Lockers were broken in main dorm. The door to the main dorm was never locked, anybody could walk in to the hostel off the street and into the dorm room without much hindrance. Some staff were very helpful but others very disinterested. No atmosphere.

Staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. Always willing to chat and answer any questions you may have. Absolutely can't beat the location. I would recommend this place to anybody:)

The rooms are beautiful and very functional with a "luggage storage" under the bed. The location is very good but a bit far of the train station. The showers are a bit dirty and there is not luggage storage when you arrive before the check in (but there is always a way to keep them behind the counter). The staff is very nice, we actually share a beer with the guy who was there at night and overall the hostel is really nice.

The location is really great and from my dorm I had a nice view to the river. The stuff is very friendly and helpful. Clean, good atmosphere - I can absolutely recommend this hostel.

Nice hostel right off old square, but somehow avoids much of the noise from it. The only thing lacking is more toilets in the morning rush, but it's not the worst by any means. The guys working the desk ask what kind of things you like to see or do then go through a map and point out those specific things, and some other things that may interest you. Very helpful staff.

Our stay in Riverside hostel was very nice, in the center with a beautiful view to the river. The staff was excellent, very helpfull and pleasant, breakfast delicious, there could be something sweet like a jam though. I hope we will come back one day...

The location and view couldn't be beat. We had a view of the river from our room and we could easily walk anywhere. The front desk was cool--it was made entirely of books. The staff helped us check out super early, which we appreciated. The common space was nice, with games and couches and tables. The bathroom trash smelled pretty bad and hadn't been taken out for a while, apparently, but otherwise our stay was very nice.
