We had to wait an hour before someone let us in the hostel. We told them when we'd be there. One of the staff members had a family emergency; I understand those things happen. We paid €40 for a dirty room next to a very loud street, granted, it was a private room. Location was good because it was next to the train station, but almost everyone we saw was either drunk, homeless, and yelling or they were on drugs. I don't recommend this place unless there's nowhere else.

I can't say anything about Aquarium because the attendant was not there when we arrived, forcing us to find another hostel. It was in a residential apartment building with OK security, looked small, can't say much more. Owner was very kind about returning the deposit and the mix-up
