the only major issue is that the room could not be darkened, which is annoying if you are not used to 24 hours of daylight! location is very nice!
wi fi did not work
very hard to find. hostel is hidden in a hotel.
I slept in a room with too many people... but this is my fault. The hostel is recommendable because of its character, cleanliness and security. It is not veeery close to public transportation. i was sleeping in a building different than the main one and the internet, that was supposed to be there, did not work properly. but was very fast at the reception. music in the lobby is very good!
i was lucky enough to arrive in some days when live music was played in the late afternoon and early evening. and this was very pleasant. hostel is clean. not much security but i did not feel worried as the room was small enough and the situation seemed to be under control. internet did not work properly either in the room nor in the lobby/bar.
very good hostel overall. i had to choose a very big room which was quite bad for me as too many people with different habits (some arriving very late at night, some leaving very early) have to share the room. the rest was perfect, clean, nice personnel, secure as the lockers can be locked with a padlock. location is good and quiet. but not fur from the buzz
the town was overbooked because of the fringe festival. i just needed a bed as i had to wait one night for a flight transfer. the hostel did its function even if it was loud because of music coming from some pubs downstairs. some issues with the key so that the door could of the room could be opened just by someone in the reception... not really sure if i would recommend it.
extra charges for everything. staff not very polite. wi fi did not work all the time. the common area/reception is not open 24/7: people have to leave it at about 11 pm.
