    Great staff. Arrived earlier than check-in time, but allowed me to check-in. Very clean and spacious room! Biggest shared hostel room I've been. Toilets are amazing. Location is near the center. It's a 12 min walk from the train station. Lovely atmosphere and facilities. They've got a foosball and couches for recreation. Lovely design for the pantry.

    The hostel is close to the train station. They have an amazing breakfast, the rooms are nice, bathrooms are big and clean. It is a bit expensive but worth the price.

    A good place to spend a couple of days. While it seems a little bit cold, the a/c is always on, there is hot water and the breakfast was simple and delicious. A nice experience overall.

    Right next to the train station and a short walk to the city. No social atmosphere here, just a place to sleep. Expensive for what you get though, for the same price you could be in a much nicer hostel.

    Overall it was super clean and the free breakfast was great. Cheese, bologna, croissants,etc. Also, a full coffee bar! The atmosphere was definitely not that of a social hostel tho. It was clean, a little bit over priced, and not much of a place to meet people, but a good hostel if you just need a place to stay and a full belly.

    The room was very cold, and the A.C very Noisy. Sleeping there was not a good experience. Other from that, everything was okay

    the bathroom did not feel very clean, and the person at the front desk was pretty friendly but at 11 pm he seemed too tired to give me much information about the city. it was quiet - there were not a lot of people on sunday night but they put me in a dorm with other english speaking people. the bathroom was not very clean - i didn't shower. +: they give you a towel and fresh bedding in a package. they do some social justice work but didn't talk about it ... overall maybe 3.5 stars

    It’s one of the cheapest options in the city, I’d still recommend others to stay here for the location, safety, and price! It is a fairly large hostel and not well cleaned. The breakfast is great but ends early and you don’t get access to the kitchen. But you’ll have a good time!
