    Wonderful place, kept very tidy, and the heaters in the room actually worked! Super cozy! There was also a dashing reading nook where one could read while watching the snow fall.

    Great location with everything you need in a hostel. You do need to bring a blanket or rent one from them. Also you have to walk through the bar to get to the showers. Still would recommend.

    Great Vibe and location. One consideration is the noise factor. Our room was very near a club and was quite noisy. I would still recommend - but would pack a pair of earplugs.

    Bathrooms are downstairs and you have to walk through the bar/ restaurant before going to them, walls are thin and you hear a lot of outside noises from the room but other then that the overall vibe and hostel is great. Location is by far the best as it is right downtown and gives you access to a lot!

    Very Good

    Just note that bedding is not included in your accommodation pay. We had to pay extra for a blanket. This should be noted on the website. We delt with one particular staff member who was very rude. She didn’t even tell us where the showers were. The location is great but can be a bit loud when sleeping. All in all it was a good stay, would have been better if the staff member had a smile on her face and wasn’t so rude. I unfortunately didn’t catch her name, all the other staff members were great

    Very Good

    I think the linen charge of over 1000 is totally ridiculous, linen should be included in the price on hostelworld! And strange that the hostel has no printed information regarding the hike up Sulur. Also, the lockers are too small for a full size back pack. Had to make my own bed. Other hostels around the world do these types of things better. Good location, clean & a nice kitchen.
