Great hostel. Well maintained. It's an easy walk from both the main train station and the city center. The downstairs area is great for meeting other travelers. Would definitely stay here again.
In general it was a great hostel with a good atmosphere. The only problem was the wifi. Seriously the worst wifi I have ever experienced. Almost to the point of wanting to roam on my cellphone.
Kitchen was dirty as though the staff hadn't cleaned it for awhile. The window was broken in the room, perhaps the hostel should repair it as soon as possible.
This hostel was very expensive and I couldn't figure out why. The staff were not the nicest, breakfast was expensive and not great, the wifi didn't work and people without a phone plan needed to go to the macdonalds to research their next steps. There also wasn't enough plugs in the rooms for electrical. This was the most expensive hostel I've stayed in yet and was very dissatisfied with the value. If it was a cheaper hostel I wouldn't have had any problems.
Nice hostel, felt more like a hotel really. They had a great happy hour deal of €1.90 for a pint of beer and it is well connected by public transportation but it is an easy walk to the city center. Only complaint is that they overbooked our room and a staff member stormed into our room at 4:30 AM, turned on the light and made a bit of a scene accusing people in of not belonging there. No one got much sleep after that.
Room wasn't the best Right next to the Metro Station so made getting around easy. Could do with more atmosphere in the evenings
It was a nice stay here, shame it was ruined by the other people in my room who were really disrespectful. Good location, transport close, good food around. Having to get a wifi code everyday for every device was annoying though and wifi reception was crappy
I really enjoyed my stay here. The location was great and the rooms were very big and clean. Decent wifi too.

The rooms were nice, beds pretty comfortable. However, the pillows were absolutely awful. Very thin and fragile, no support whatsoever. Bathrooms were small and not very clean. The drain was clogged up so the shower would fill up with water and almost overflow. Checkout time is at 10am but you will actually be woken up at 915am by a very rude man that doesn't speak any English and kick you out of bed to change your sheets. So be ready for that. Wifi doesn't work too well either.
Pros: Bar and sitting area with TV (good prices and pizza was actually pretty good!), rooms were spacious, decent access to power outlets, area was safe Cons: A bit far from city center (30 minute walk), atmosphere was a bit subdued, breakfast was expensive so we just went to Starbucks and it ended up being cheaper, elevator is kind of scary but we didn't have any problems with it, one bathroom for 8 person room Takeaways: Actually a pretty good experience, nothing too special about it
Wasn't a bad hostel. Right next to the U-Bahn, so easy to get into town. It's a bit off from the center of town, so walking it multiple times probably wont be appealing. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Roommates made a mess of the room and it wasn't really cleaned comprehensively. Facilities were outstanding, good water pressure and beds. Always harder to meet people in large hostels but he bar helps when it's busy. And they gave me a free sandwich!
Location way to far away, to hot to be traveling that far. The staff were really nice though.
My bathroom toliet ran all night/day long. First the toliet didn't work then when "fixed" it ran water all the time. It was very load at night. I didn't feel that the rooms were cleaned properly everyday. And it's a bit rude for the staff to come in before check out to take the sheets.
This is a clean hostel but feels slightly soulless. It's 2 metro stops from the centre and is a bit of a walk. Over all pretty good but nothing special especially given the price
Your hostel was to anonymous for me, it had the feeling of a hotel with bunkbed-dorms. Sadly was the hostel bar not manned properly cause the bartender seems to be busy with other duties than being behind the bar and chatting with guests and introduce the to each other. In general a good hostel that need to get their bar going and add some vegetables and fruits to the breakfast then it will become an awesome place to stay at.
The location was a bit far from the city center (about 20 min walk) and from central station (about 30 min walk) but both were easy walks. It is close to a metro but we only used that once. The rooms are all recently revamped so they are pretty nice. Mara was incredibly sweet and helpful in the two separate occasions we worked with her but the other workers were not friendly or helpful so finger crossed you work with her. Overall, not a bad place for the price!
10 minutes from the main station. Nice bar and atmosphere. Staff were friendly. Everything you needed from a hostel
The female dorm was average. The lights in the room were either out or poorly lit. In addition, there is a curfew at 10, but on all three of the nights we were there, people were coming into the room well past midnight. Also, there were other people who stayed in the room (ie males) when I had purchased an all female room. I was not super impressed with the dorm situation. Getting a mixed dorm room would have been just the same if I had wanted one. Overall, the staff was nice and helpful.

The hostel was fine, but felt more like a hotel. The bar was nice and had great beer prices. It had so many people the staff could not take extra time for travelers like smaller hostels can. Also, Wifi was poor everywhere except at McDonald's on the corner.
