I wouldn't recommend this hostel at all! We were shocked about our room which we shared with two other guys. It was dirty, smelly, the floor was broken and we found stains in our beds. And because it wasn't bad enough our roomie decided to bring his girlfriend over for the night - so actually five people on a four bedroom! The reaction of the receptionist wasn't helpful. We hadn't had breakfast there because it was simply too bad and we didn't want to end our trip like that! Never again!

Very bad beds, noisy rooms, not enough seeting area for all the people, horrible design, no engaging staff


Beds creak and groan, causing sleep deprivation, no lift, and its 4 floors high. We were asked what time we wanted breakfast, said 8 and this was agreed, when we arrived at this time we were told that breakfast was not served until 9.30:(. After some discussion we were eventually served.


We booked the 'Deluxe apartment' for 1 night at this hostel, breakfast included. At first it looked like a nice room, untill we went for bed. The sofabed is a nightmare and the matress is uneven. Also the bed upstairs didn't really sleep well. It was like laying in a pit because the sides stood straight. The shower get's really cold all of a sudden or extremely (and dangerously)hot. Breakfast includes the cheapest bread and scones there are with some milk with ice cubes in it and orangejuice.


rooms are very run down and there are no lockers. kitchen was very dirty no proper lighting either
