Pathetic! This hostel has a good rating only because of its location. The hostel is on 3rd floor & there are no lifts. You cannot be in hostel from 10am to 4pm daily for cleaning which is very irritating & inconvenient. Even after that the hostel stinks badly. There are just 2 washrooms (toilets and shower together in washroom) So if you have get ready by 10 then you need to wake up too early in order to use the washrooms. Bunk beds have no stairs. You need to jump to go to the top bed.

Great location, nice dinner and very nice atmosphere. It's an apartment turned into a hostel so you only have the key to the place the rooms have no keys. The have small lockers though. Hey clean the place for 6 hours in the middle of the day everyday. You can drop off your bag but then they make you leave from 10 to 16. There is no sign on the building. Just a small label on the door bell. The staff are a little bit weird. Aw they don't accept credit/debit card only cash!

This hostel has a really good location BUT is really nasty. I have stayed so far in many hostels and I have never experience this level of disgusting ... Since you arrive the smell of the hostel is like a mix of stinky feet and kebab, the bathrooms are dirty... I found a piece of a carrot on the bath WTF! The sheet were dirty. And there is a lockout from 10 am to 6pm, supposedly to clean but ... I don't know if it is the mop they use or what but the place stinks.

It was okay I think really it was the people that made my stay, advertised as a party hostel but you have to leave you room from 11-4 everyday forcing you to sleep off your hangover in a park or similar. Staff took us to some questionable bars but other than that were cool guys. They put on great dinners and sangria nights also

I think it's pretty weird that you have to leave the hostel at 10 and can't return before 4 because the staff has to clean the hostel every day for 6 hours . I once stayed here in summer, obviously it was very hot outside and around noon all I wanted to do every day was to take a really cold shower and relax a little bit in the hostel but it wasn't possible because of cleaning. Not even in the common room. Anyway the location is perfect , thats the one good thing about this Hostel .

This hostel was amazing because of the people and location. Each night, the staff served free dinner and wine. The common room was inviting and a good place to meet people from all over the world. We met people from every continent except Antarctica, and we all went out one night together. There are only two bathrooms\showers in the hostel, so wake up early and get to the shower first if you want a clean shower. Everything else was super clean. It does close from 10-4 for cleaning.

Good hostel! The atmosphere was fantastic and the fact they often provided free wine for the guests was amazing! WIsh we weren't forced to leave for most of the day. That was the only draw back

Great location, perfectly cantered to all the main sights. Such a multi-lingual and multicultural hostel. Nightly free group get together soon in the hostel with wine or pasta to share. Great staff and great friends made. Only downside is the lockout time for cleaning, but then at least you know it's clean! I had a great time. Would recommend and would stay again.

amazing location. downfall was a bit weird when they kick you out every morning at 10 am to 4 pm and they take apart all the beds and clean them but not the floors.

bed bug alert.. hostel was not bad, location was good, things seemed clean but I came out of it with many many bites after just one night.

The hostel is in a great position, but the good parts basically stops here: the rooms are small, you have only two bathrooms available and to get to the hostel you have to walk to 3rd floor without an elevator, considering the price this hostel is not a good bargain.

Wouldn't recommend. They had a 6h lockout for 'cleaning' purposes but the place seemed to be in the same state upon our return. We also noticed they moved everything out of the rooms, beds and all, during this period.

It was a great location and a good value for the money. It was a little inconvenient that you couldn't be there between 10 and 4. Also, the staff made my friends and I a little uncomfortable sometimes. The bathrooms were always wet and slippery.

Starting with positives, the two guys who run it are really nice, it is the best location in the city, free wine every night and pasta/pizza nights were really good and you meet other people. But on the other hand you get kicked out everyday for 6 hours (10-4) for "cleaning" purposes, no way they clean for 6 hours. Two guys kind of always lurking around maybe just since it was so small. Also there are no locks on the doors which was really weird but we felt safe enough and there were lockers

Not a nice hostel but it the best price for location. They close the hostel from 10am to 4pm. It isn't a party hostel neither. The only party feature the hostel has is a bowl of sangria on a table in the evening. Also, don't be surprised if you see ducktape reparations. It can do the job if you have good ear plugs and go there to sleep. For me it was OK.
