There was some inconsistency in customer service by the front desk. Some were more helpful than others. Also, even though lockers were provided in the dorm, presumably 1 per bed, all lockers in the 4-bed dorm had been occupied. Obviously one of the other occupants had taken up 2 lockers. I generally enjoy my stays at backpacker hostels, but reminders should be given to all people who stay there to be considerate to the other guests who may have to share the dorm.

An excellent central hostel but more a place to sleep than meet new people.

Pros: Good, clean showers. Fairly quiet. Very close to Central Station. Cons: Expensive and every additional service is another charge. Blankets etc on beds were musty and old.

My only complaint would be the stuffiness of the rooms. The small window does not open and there is no air circulation. The room smelled like dirty feet. Maybe the screws could be removed from the latches. Most of us would not climb out or jump.

The hostel is good and in a nice location. I didnt find the staff overly welcoming or interested in providing you with advice about the city, or events taking place at the hostel. The WiFi is not great, only really works in one main room - and not at all in the rooms. The hostel is very clean, but has no sense of community. If you are travelling on your own and looking to meet fellow travellers, this may not be the best one. Compared to my stay at previous hostels, this one is not worth the $$!!

Large hostel and yet capable of maintaining extremely high standards of service. Never had to rush for laundry, kitchen usages or even seatings on the common floor. Great place!

Very clean and tidy hostel in great location. Large communal areas, small swimming pool on roof and cinema showing films daily. Lockers provided in rooms. Expensive electronic lockers available for luggage storage. Cafe next door. Swimming pool on roof. Swipe card access for rooms and toilets.

Stayed 2 nights, as the city has so much to offer we spent very little time here, but the hostel has everything you could want. 4 bed rooms are spacious with lockers and showers/ toilets are clean and modern. Very central location that can't be beaten!

Excellent location, clean hostel, okay facilities. A bit expensive though, luggage storage isn't included, WiFi isn't included.. Those little extra expenses make a stay quite expensive :-( Would recommend the hostel for a short stay!

We thought it was a nice, clean and friendly hostel. The staff were helpful whenever we asked questions and it was one of very few hostels that we stayed in that we wanted to stay for longer. Good review for a good place.

The hostel is good. Well located. But Wifi isn't free and the couch was a bit stinking...

This hostel is amazing, it's not like a hostel it's like a three star hotel. I will def be staying here again. This hostel is a big more expensive but if you want somewhere that feels modern & clean this is the place.

The beds were not made when we arrived. The sheets of the previous occupants was still on the bed. The carpet is a bit smelly.

This is the Rolls Royce of hostels, the facilities are exceptional for a hostel. Massive rooms, secure and very clean facilities. You are paying a premium but it's worth every cent, particularly if you are an older traveller who doesn't always want to slum it. Staff were polite and efficient but not a barrel if laughs. Come here for a bit of luxury
