This is a fantastic hostel! Great location, rooms are fab, kitchen well equipped, wifi everywhere, and the staff are wonderful, super helpful, friendly, and cool. Definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed in. There were only a few things that could be improved: there's no freezer, the included breakfast could perhaps have been more healthy, perhaps with more fruit. You could only have one portion, which was often half a banana! Otherwise, fab. Staff especially were just great.
After being recommended this hostel, I was pretty underwhelmed by it. Other than one very helpful and friendly staff member (a girl with red hair and vintage style, I think her name began with C...), the rest of the staff were indifferent and cold. My room was very uncomfortable, due to sharing with 9 other people, 3 of whom snored. Almost no one spoke to each other, and I would regularly find the bedroom door hanging open. Poor atmosphere. Only one plug socket in our room, in an awkward place!
I was all set to give this hostel an excellent review, had it not been for an incident with one member of staff accusing another guest of lying. Super awkward and uncomfortable, the staff member treated him like scum, based on a mistake his own colleague had made. The situation was incredibly poorly handled and made it absolutely crystal clear that this particular staff member did not respect guests. So, so poorly handled, and in front of another guest, who is now writing this review? Awful.

I LOVE this place! Awesome area, fantastic staff, brilliant facilities. Great little healthy & organic shops around the corner, gym and yoga, and a CHOCOLATE FACTORY right near the metro! All the good things. Very safe, very modern, very well designed. I wouldn't look anywhere else. Great transport links, too. Book book book!
A wonderful hostel!! David is an INCREDIBLE guy, the hostel is his baby and he basically runs it single handedly. He's so helpful & kind, and goes out of his way to help. I'm vegan and he bought me breakfast especially at no extra cost. He had to go to 3 supermarkets! The hostel itself is small and cosy, wifi is fast, and it's easy to meet others. It's located near supermarkets and museums, and David will happily direct you around. It's very secure, everyone I met was lovely. Such a great place.
