The hostel smelled of mould and must. The shower ceilings looked as though they had water damage and overall the place was too hot and smelled badly. I think maybe because it's an old building? The lock on my door was loose so that was kind of sketchy.


Nice clean place in a good location. The only issue was the rooms were ridiculously hot even with heating off and windows open.

I didn't find this place very communal. there is a very nice common area but no one used it while I was there. Great place, comfort, location. The staff was SUPER helpful as I had luggage that I needed shipped home.
