Most comfortable hostel I stayed in by far. Beds are huge and the room itself provides great privacy. I'd highly recommend this place, and I'd definitely return. Staff are extremely nice. It is indeed an amazing place to rest, plus breakfast is delicious. More

If you're looking for a clean place to stay, this is definitely the place to do it. Good location near the tram as well. The atmosphere, however, is not your typical hostel atmosphere. There were hardly any guests in the lobby area and the staff seemed pretty content talking to each other More

Ghost hostel, absolutely no atmosphere at all, common areas are typically vacant. Everyone that stayed there got super sick too, so cleaning may not be up to par. They say they're a backpacker hostel but I had to share a room with two old men in town for business who snored all night long. More

The stay at the 404 hostel was great. The house is a small,nice one. It's a good place to get to know new people. The subway is really near to the hostel so you easy get to the centre where all the sights are. Only the breakfast is small like it's announced. More

On Saturday, while we were out, we came back to find an chocolate bar wrapper on one of our beds. We thought it might have been our 4th roommate who had moved out while we were gone, but the cleaners had come through to change the garbage cans, so we aren't sure what happened. It was a More

It was a decent place but only had one washroom on each floor and the one on my floor was out of toilet paper the night I stayed there. I informed the staff but I can only assume they forgot because no toilet paper appeared until the morning. More

Lamentable and surreal experience at this hostel. I arrived on a Saturday night with my hotelsworld booking, there was a young guy with a huge nose ring that told me the booking is canceled. For what reason is canceled? "I do not know" Who has canceled it? "I don't know, I can help you". More

There is no kitchen at the hostel and there is absolutely no hostel atmosphere despite the bar. Very boring place to stay. The staff were ok, one of the ladies was really rude and did not want to help at all. The location is good, price is really good and clean. Also, not too many people More
