Hostel near the Train Station and all the main place to visit, the room is good. The lobby is quiet small to meet the other people, not too much atmosphere but still an excellent place to stay.
Had a very nice experience. The one exception was the shower, which was cold. Probably broken, though, since talking to other fellow travelers, they reported a different experience.
Although technically "clean", the place didn't feel clean. It hasn't been maintained extremely well, so I think that's why. I also had a room between the staircase and the bathroom. It was the noisiest night I've ever experienced. The other guests were very rude and inconsiderate in their noise level and the facilities did nothing except magnify the noise. Disappointing.
Nothing special but was fine to stay at. Very good kitchen
The rooms were excellent - clean with nice beds and plenty of room. Although there were no lockers! Wifi is only available in common areas which can be a little inconvenient at times. The shower was completely cold in the morning - not sure why. The bathrooms aren't great and staff were a bit rude at times, otherwise it's such a convenient location so I would probably recommend it!
No internet(WiFi) in rooms was a huge let down.. Other than that, awesome hostel
Nice hostel which is very close to the train station / cathedral. It was pretty clean, staff was nice and helpful. If you are going for a fun hostel, this probably isn't the place. Has beds instead of bunk beds, which is a plus. Everyone we met was on a laptop or tablet or phone, which was unfortunate. Other than that, it was nice.
I was on the 4th floor so was quiet had Nice beds not bunks, staff really friendly and helpful. Had a kitchen which was good and quite a bit of communal areas to socialise in. Free wi if in the common room and had a small bar. 5 min walk to the station and cathedral so really good base.
Most of the hostel had a bad smell. The showers were automatic and only lasted 10seconds, so you had to keep pushing the button every ten seconds. Would not stay here again.
Just a few small flaws, otherwise my stay was perfect. - No wifi in room, only at reception and lounge area. - Urinoir on 3rd floor does not flush (water not connected) - Cramped breakfast area.
It's really close to the main station, which is nice if you have to catch early trains. The breakfast is a good deal and the kitchen is nice! Good common areas, and friendly staff. I would go back!
Friendly people mostly. Bathroom so small for the 4 bed dorm. I often used the outside bathroom. The common area is a good idea but it is very small and can be cramped. Some people were playing games on the internet for very lengthy periods of time making it impossible to secure a computer to make an onward accommodation booking or to check flights or email quickly. Perhaps a limit of an hour at a time would be a good idea in busy times.

This hostel is a 5 min walk from the Hauptbahnhof and the Cathedral and the staff is friendly, the only not so great thing is the bathroom, they weren´t that clean and also smelly.
Very nice hostel! It's right next to the central station, so it could be a bit loud (it depends on your room). But the rooms are big and the facilities are exellent.
They just could offer internet in the bedrooms!
Everything was quite alright, but the wifi was super slow, unstable and only in the common room.
It's really good. But if you mind Wifi, it's very unestable and only in first floor (common areas).
