It was nothing special. It was comfy and the rooms not to crowded. It's not a bad place. But not a special one. No facilities and a staff policy that's ask us anything! We just don't know the answer.... I had to look it up to remember it for the reveiw

The room was not clean and no lockers in it. Also only there was only one bathroom.


ok place for the money


No power sockets near the bed. Bathroom never had any toilet paper. You had to walk through the reception to get to get to the bathroom. On the beds there were no mattress protectors and instead of two sheets there was only one double folded over! Very poor. Quite a noisy room. Buzzing for the door all night. Basically not a good choice. The only redeeming feature was the shower pressure.. But the shower head was broken.


Very hard to locate, no mention that it is in a security block with a looked door and no mention of having to buzz a number On The gate. Walked passed it twice as it only had a little sign above the door that could only been seen from across the road. Bathroom was dirty and had no lock, anyone with a key could come straight in the door and would be walk in on you in the shower or toilet. Only plus was it was 10 min walk from main train station.


Really good hostel, clean and confortable!!


Quite bizarre place, just to crash one night near the station. Wifi doesn't work at all in the upper floor were most rooms are. The kitchen is just a microwave that is ment to the staff. In the main floor where I heard crazy fights and noises from people staying there and girls crying. One toilet for the whole floor, quite. dirty. People checking in at 2 or 3 am into the room with the guy from recepcion without even knocking the door (we were all girls). Noises from the outside. Take credit card


Staff is really nice to us. They are really helpful. The place is good,too. Beds are comfortable.


The facilities were in a bad condition. For a towel you have to pay extra. Depressive atmosphere - all in all not worth for the money.
