Good stay. Clean hostel with friendly staff. It's easy to catch the bus to the hostel from the station, and from there you can walk to the city in 15 - 20 minutes. I was almost charged the non-member charge even though I was a Hostelling International member. It seems to be the default. Perhaps it would be better to ask guests first.


Good clean hostel, pleasant staff. Plug sockets were difficult to use in the room.

I stayed for two nights. First, the location is little far from downtown but you can get from Train Station to the hostel in 15 minutes by bus. Second, bed and bedding stuff are comfortable and room and bathroom are clean. Third, there are many facilities for travellers such as playing room, TV room and lounge. Last, staff are very kind and friendly. They accepted me even my booking had some error. I appreciate that.


Everything was good except the location. The staff there was very helpful. Breakfast was very good. All in all it was a nice place to stay.

Very large hostel, went in fall and it was mostly high school school trips taking over the rooms - or families. Not a typical youth hostel (could be the time of year) so it wasn't a great atmosphere/social environment. Dinner available at night (expensive but so is the rest of the city), great healthy breakfast included. A 15 minute walk to downtown.


The hostel is too expensive for what it offers: too far from the city center, super-small rooms, sockets don't work, few bathrooms per floor. No wifi signal in the room, car park is really expensive. Positive notes: breakfast included and cleancleanliness.
