Very nice staff, upgraded from one to two double beds room as the "Twin beds room" did not exist, despite the fact Hostelworld advertise it.


The good: - location - very informed and helpful staff - new place The bad: - slow internet, gets disconnected (apparently fixed after Sunday) - don't accept cards and then change the story and say they do but charge 15% surcharge - this is not communicated at all during the reservation process or in the email - overly pushy/unflexible staff when it comes to payment, deactivated the keys in the middle of the stay because room not fully paid for - only one washbasin in the bathroom

The hostel was extremely nice. The front desk attendant was very courteous and helpful. They upgraded my room and it was very large. The private bathroom was super and the lofted bed was very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
