Everything was perfect! If I had to criticise something, I would complain about the Wi-Fi because it works only at the ground floor and it could be useful in order to find some information on the Internet, like clubs or streets. Except from this, the hostel is clean, nearby a U-Bahn station, comfortable beds, nice staff.

More like a hotel than a hostel. Not a good place for meeting people but a great place for quiet.

Although far from the city center, really close to a very simple metro to get there.


It was a little bit hard to fine at first, great lication, near the metro, the staff are really friendly and helpful, super clean rooms with private bathroom inside your room you only need to share it with your dorm Mates, 5 people, you cant connect wifi inside the room but, sitting on the stairway always works... Great way to minggle with fellow wifi users aswell...


Miss naughty attitude at the front desk when I asked her to show me the room for free internet at reception; refused because the camera does not work in wireless. Free internet works in front of the reception and lobby, but you have to stand up or walk. Inadmissible.


Close and easy taxi ride to airport. Close to public transport. Not close to the city- but we merely stayed here for an early flight the next morning. Wifi is rather average and you have to sit in the corridor for it to work- not the best situation for guests or management. Spacious rooms. Big lockers, close to shops. Exceeded our expectations.


The hostel had no communal area for people to mingle and chat, the bathroom had flooded prior to my stay and I alerted reception and nothing was done. The wifi only works on floor one and the lower floor. Would not advise staying here.
