This place is a life experience. If you ever wondered what it is like to live in the house from the movie 'fight club' look no further. Don't think, just book it with some friends and bring beers!

Super nice hostel with great location. Owner was really nice and helpfull. Thanks for great stay!


Don't bother The hostel is cold and unfriendly. It does not feel welcoming or comfortable. There is a TV room with vhs that you can borrow but you can'tmake noise. Lots of religious preaching on the wall. The 6year old daughter being on reception is a very odd greeting when you arrive... Beds are sqeaky and uncomfortable On an old abandoned street on the opposite end of any people and action in the city.


wfi was only available on bottom floors. we were on 5th -top. beds were singles on bunks but poor. kitchen very good spacious and pots and pans available. loads of stairs. parking only a few spots.


Wasn't the cleanest or flashest but we fully loved staying there, the beds were incredibly comfy, we slept better there than at home! Such a gorgeous and random old building, great lil rooftop garden too

Location is really good and the building looks nice, but definitely can be improved by cleaning, improving the facilities, more heating and organising.


This hostel is awesome. A little strange, but awesome. Also its super cheap. When it was too late to book a shuttle bus, the manager drove me to the airport for about half the price I would have paid for a cab.

What a nice building ! We felt like being in Hogwards. Too bad the owner (who obviously bought this only YHA) is not taking care of the place well...
