The location is the one thing we enjoyed about this hostel. The area is filled with markets and pubs and restaurants. The hostel itself is unpleasant. The entire building is warm, and we dreaded returning to the hostel each day because we knew we would be sweating while trying to simply relax. The showers are one button with no way of controlling temperature. The atmosphere is melancholy as we figured out most other guests were uncomfortable like us. I would not recommend this hostel.

I really liked the location and relative ease of getting there from the airport, although it may take longer than a taxi to ride the train the signs are easy to follow and the directions on the hostel website tell you exactly what you need to do.

Really cool place to stay! The only problem was that one night we didn't have hot water, however the problem was fixed next day. Recommended!

Our stay at the Young and Happy hostel was the last on our Europe trip. When booked this hostel for a group of five six months in advance. When we arrived at the hostel we were informed that we would not be able to stay as a group in one room. We were compensated with free breakfast which was nothing special. A little disappointing at the end of a great vacation. Rooms are fine, but there were not many plugs. Staircase to rooms is very narrow and not all floors have bathrooms on them.

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to express your feelings about your stay in our hostel. We would like to sincerely apologize for the different inconveniences you have met during your stay with us.We'd like to share a useful information with you, a booking into a mixed dorm could be splitted into different dorms as you experienced it. Only private room are done not to seperate a group. Let’s hope that we will regain your trust and welcome you back for a more pleasurable experience at Young and Happy Hostel. With my best regards, Sabine Manager

Staff were not very friendly. Facilities were extremely basic and cleanliness was lacking. Also, extra charges for everything.

This hostel was not quite what I expected when I booked the room. The bathrooms they show must be part of some of the private rooms because the actual bathrooms were not as nice. Also having bathrooms and showers on a different floor from your room was pretty annoying. The showers had no temperature control and are turned on by a button that you have to press approx. every 15sec to keep the water on, which was annoying. The kitchen was great and location was close to many of the sites.

I'd have absolutely recommended Young and Happy off the back of my visit there last year as I had an absolutely brilliant time; so good that I wanted to return this year. This time round, however, Y&H felt like a place for people to just sleep and nothing else, with staff that couldn't really be arsed. After the highs of last year, this was a real disappointment and I'm afraid to say that I probably won't be returning to Y&H in the future.

Fun time. Seemed like a smaller hostel when I first got there but when walking up the stairs I realized it was a lot larger, just most seemed to be Women only rooms and not as many people hung out in the commons area. Still meet some amazing people my first night and a great location
