This is a very well located and clean hostel. I found all the service working great. Personal were very friendly and helpful. The only problem is that wifi didn't work very well around the hostel and I had to go to the front desk to get a better coverage.

why not free internet as there is in so many other places a party hostel so can be very loud due to design

Hi there!Thanks for your feedback and sorry for the Internet trouble. We do have FREE WIFI in the whole house, and you only have to pay a symbolic price to use our PC-s just to avoid that the same guests sit there for hours. Hope to see you next time!

O absolutely loved this hostel, it was the best one I've ever stayed and the price was really good! The location was eacellent, super central and close to all the cool places in the city! Highly recommend.

Hostel was in a great location, was very spacious and bright and a good vibe. Staff were friendly and happy to help, phoned us a taxi to the train station so we didn't get ripped off too! Rooms were clean and spacious, bathrooms also very clean. Electronic key card entry to rooms which also controlled lockers which was great. Wifi was poor in the room but worked fine in the main area of the hostel.

Right on one of the main roads, location brilliant. Staff were great and helped us organise an airport shuttle. The free WIFI is slighly temperamental but can't fault the cleanliness or the rooms. Not relating to the hostel (which I would recommend) but a few of the places around the hostel consistently made 'mistakes' on receipts overcharging us by quite a lot so always double check!

Most of the things are very nice but it's quite noisy at night.

Was a great hostel and was in a really great fun location. Our 8 bed dorm was really nice and well later out. The wifi not very good though, this was the same in another wombats hostel that we stayed in which is a shame because overall the hostel was great.

Bathrooms needed better cleaning and the cleaning staff never left enough toilet paper although we were 8 persons in the room. One roll is just not enough. Loved your breakfast.

Beware of the check out. The convenient lockers won't work past your 10am checkout.

Great building, clean, nice, modern. Close to the train station, close to cheap food options, along with heaps of restaurants and bars. Nice big rooms with air con, great big clean bathrooms. Good solid internet throughout the building. Very comfortable hostel to stay in and I'm fussy lol! Highly Recommend!!!!

One of the best, if not THE best hostel I've stayed at. Excellent central location, very helpful staff and plenty of tips and advice on the walls in reception. Rooms were always clean and had big lockers so that our stuff was safe. Cracking pizza cafe just next door. The shower was a power shower but the clip to hold it up had broken! The only aspect to improve is the very slow WiFi which is pointless as it doesn't work. Highly recommended, has to be one, if not the best hostel in Europe.

The hostel is huge and well decorated but it lacks atmosphere and the rooms aren't cleaned often. The location is really the best thing, you're in the centre of town. Its just an average hostel.
