Unfortunately the company we had in the room was not great. People that had left beer everywhere spilled all over the floor when we first arrived. They also kept us up all night. Obviously, this sometimes happens but it is not something you want to have to deal with

I guess the Hostel can be considered a good place for cannabis lovers but it's definitely not open to all other types of travellers. The room was not exactly clean and neither was the bathroom. The lobby is inside the coffee shop. There's no quiet place where to rest and read or listen to some music far from smoke. The quality of the breakfast was extremely low. Definitely not Worth the 28 euros I have paid and below the standard you expect. Very disappointing!

This hostel provide all the essentials, including a great breakfast , but the is no kitchen for use by guests. Guests are not allowed to bring food on the which is a bit annoying , but aside from that it is OK. The showers were good, but missing screens so everything in the gets wet if you shower. The atmosphere is good but it is a bit commercial. It is a pretty good hostel to stay.

Great hostel bang in the middle of he red light district, free shower gel, toothpaste, spray in the bathrooms etc and towels in rooms which is awesome plus the place is really clean. Make sure to check out the rooftop terrace and pay a little extra to get a private room coz they are awesome!

The only negative things I can say about this hostel is that there is no kitchen facility and it is not allowed to bring your own food/drinks (which is not really hostel like). Also it was a bit strange, that they just moved my stuff from one room to another without notification because they had to do some maintance work or something. Apart from that it was a nice stay and I would stay there again.

Twelve people for 1 bathroom was too many. Rooms were loud and beds not great. My top bunk was missing a ladder so it was difficult to get up to. Also there should be more than one little mirror in a room and the hair dryer should not be in the main sleeping area so you wake everyone up when you dry your hair. Way too expensive for quality of room, facilities, etc.

It was too expensive for what you get... Room was big enough but it was quite dirty. We hate carpets on the floor!!!! And they weren´t clean at all (disgusting). When you have a shower the whole toilet gets wet so after if someone wants to use it is not possible. And there is no common room, only a bar. For going out at night is great but I think a common room would be great for the rest of the day. Anyway, location is perfect, in the Red Light District so you get everywhere inmmediately.

Nice place. Great location. Staff were nice. Rooms decent size as were the bathrooms. Downstairs bar/pub area was good too.

Very good location to see the city. Don't look for the typical hostel you would find somewhere else, this one feels more like a hotel (a bit more impersonal, I mean). In overall, good enough and nothing to complain.
