Good hostel. However, it's part of the hotel next door so there is no reception in the hostel so that feels a bit strange. Also, if you have any questions you have to keep going to the hotel next door. But the hostel is very clean and cosy. There is no breakfast or oven in the kitchen. More

Room was advertised as a private 3 bed room but actually had a double bed and a single bed so we had to ask for an additional mattress. The room was also really hot and there was no way of cooling it down as the only window was sealed shut. More

Nice hostel, unique atmosphere, do the jail tour! Not good for people who believe in ghosts - really, 3 people were hanged there. Was in a 4 bed room (not cell). There was no wifi up there. Only in other floors or stairs. The washrooms where plenty, i had not to wait. Breakfast was ok. More
