    What a great hostel! From the interior/vibes to the friendly staff. Plenty of space to chill out and cook. Free tea, coffee and pasta available every day. Aircon in the rooms and a clean, modern bathroom. Only downfalls are the extremely squeaky/wobbly beds and that if more than one person is cooking, the electric is going to turn off. It took me an hour to make some pasta! Would definitely stay again :)

    Great location, amazing kitchen, and really nice and clean rooms. The staff was super friendly and it was mildly difficult to meet people.

    I managed to find the hostel after having gone up the wrong alley (literally). Look out for the small overhanging orange sign. I was made very welcome and shown around. The hostel was clean and drinks are available at a very reasonable price. Nice to have nice fresh and clean bed linen as well. Do take a trip on the funicular railway and explore alleys nearby.

    Nice and clean, the air con didn’t work but we had the window open and it’s in a nice quiet area It was no bother! Only complaint I would have is the ladders up to the top bunk are unbalanced and tricky to climb up and down but other than that a lovely place to stay.

    The location of this hostel is amazing! The staff, common areas, and kitchen were all wonderful. The only issue is very wobbly bunk beds and a loud street which made sleeping difficult but overall a fantastic experience for the money!

    Very clean and appreciate that a large locker comes standard with each bed. There are also multiple locked doors to get to the room, which feel secure. However, the locks on the doors take some practice to open, and the bunk beds have rather flimsy construction so that one cannot avoid shaking the entire bed when moving or trying to climb on/off. The power outlets require some far reaching or step stool to access for each bed. The room itself was nice, but nighttime activity outdoors noisy.

    The people there are really nice and the place was super cozy and the rooms were really clean. I had a bit of an issue with not falling from the upper bed because there were no stops on one side. The location of the hostel is indeed in a weird neighborhood but I always tried to go on a side street to get to the hostel and had no issues.
