nice mix of brickstone+white walls, close to the metro, rooms+corridors bit smelly sometimes, but ok...bathrooms could be cleaner. lockers in every room, spacious rooms with even sometimes shelves. cooking facilities could be bigger. nice breakfast, courtyard is nice to sit outside. free wifi+bbqs...i would reccommend.
brandnew hostel, partly still under construction which wasnt a problem. was upgraded to a 2bed-"room". the "rooms" are not good, sorry...coz its been a huge loft-hall which has been divided into mini-cells where unfortunately u hardly have any space. the walls are 3/4 high: no natural light or any sound-protection or privacy (open to all other 40 or 50 rooms in the same hall). some people tried to climb over the walls into other rooms+stole some money. but common room+kitchen TOP! close to train
very nice+helpful staff, great breakfast (bagels, toast, all sorts of jam,fruits, hot cereals-porridge), female 6bed-dorm was good (2nd floor), but the mixed dorms in the basement are poor..beside the common area+bit noisy - nice bunkbeds with reading-lights+electricity+curtains (so u have some privacy) but really dirty. in general, the hostel could be cleaner (kitchen+rooms). the atmosphere is really good though, lounge area is very nice+cozy.
