Great atmosphere and environment with friendly service. Reading room was a favorite place of mine. Enjoyed the nightly activities as well. Great place to meet people if travelling alone.

This was, by far, the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable and the hostel had such an awesome atmosphere. I loved meeting people at this hostel as there were lots of communal spaces. Eating breakfast at this hostel was also special - there were so many options and yummy pancakes. The facilities were also excellent - I made use of the yoga/exercise room and the cute little library. It was overall a fantastic place for meeting people.

Excellent value for money. The location of the hostel is awesome for tourists. I stayed there for two nights and I got what I was looking for.

very good location, excellent, very helpful und always nice staff. security level is very high, you feel perfectly save. it´s a very big hostel (as usual in big cities), so it´s not the most social one, but they do their very best to bring people together. pub crawl and other stuff make it easy to get to know other travelers. I met lots of nice people! pool and soccer table can be very fun and a good start into an awesome party night. kitchen looked very good although i never really used it!

One of the best hostels ever. Location is fantastic - near Union Square, the facilities are vast - laundry, book exchange, movie room, large kitchen, bar, pool table. Really a great place to meet people and chill out. Rooms are good - privacy screens on bed, own socket and light and security locker with a socket in it. Breakfast was also fantastic - good options, including pancakes. Have nothing bad to say about this place.

Great Hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic daily/nightly activities and a good atmosphere, also has good things to do at the hostel including a cinema, pool table, work-out room and more. Location was good for the city and shopping, only a short walk to the central square with all the tours leaving from around there and the tram which takes you right down to the water front and bridge.

Everything was really good, but the breakfast and the atmosphere. The juice was diluted and it didn't taste good, there was no milk for the oats and the fruit (only bananas) were green. We had breakfast in other places the remaining days. The atmosphere seemed a little bit tense, as some people were too loud, drunk and intoxicated at night and there was no one to tell them to chill. Also, they were smoking regular cigarettes and wheat just outside the door. However I would stay again for sure.

Very dedicated and enthusiastic staff, really well maintained premises and a good level of extras such as guided tours and tourism advice. . Dorms have good quality matresses, non slaming door closers screened beds with individual lights and insect screens at the windows. . I have hosteled around the world for forty years and I know a recommendable place when I see one! .

Great stay with really good facilities including a movie room. Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily. Location is ideal with a 10 minute walk to Union Square. Be careful how you label your food though as other people tend to gelp themselves even though it has been properly labelled.

This hostel is great. Just a short work to Union Square where all the shopping district is. Very secure with their 'Show Key Entry'. Staff were great and one (kevin) even went out of his way to get me some change for the washing machine. The laundry are is super handy. Party area and common rooms are all downstairs, which keeps the noise down for sleeping quarters upstairs. Love it... and would recommend it.
