    Oh this is by far one of the top hostels I've ever stayed in. Spacious, funky, clean, really lovely staff who makes you feel like you've got a great day ahead of you always. The only problem I've found is that there's no problem! Thank you folks 😌😌

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Very modern, clean, with great staff, great activities and a nice location. I don't have much to say because it was so perfect.

    Not alot of socializing atmosphere but honestly it was exactly what i needed for a one night stay. All female rooms were spacious and clean for the most part. (some small stains on the bed but your sheets go on top...) The coffeeshop is really convenient and overall the hostel is modern and very cute. I would stay here again.

    Very well located hostel, comfortable beds and very welcoming receptionists. Only cleanliness could have been a little beeter (it was clearly visible that the previous guest in my bed was kind of an pistachio enthusiast...). Pretty quiet hostel, which I was happy about. Apart from the improvable cleanliness I was not unhappy with my choice.

    The rooms themselves were nice, and the overall hostel environment was friendly. The bathrooms were a bit dirty, particularly the showers, and they weren’t close to all the rooms. Location was good and staff were friendly.

    Great hostel, plenty of places to sit/eat/read/take a rest from exploring. The coffee shop has great coffee. The kitchen could be cleaner, but it's not bad. Horrendous street noise some nights, but there are free ear plugs at reception!

    Overall it was good, but both my friend and I had some undefined grey and green stains on our sheets. The bathrooms were clean and quite spacious :)

    Very very noisy at night from the bar next door that they run. The hostel itself has no atmosphere though even on a Friday. The layout of the rooms are a huge plus and offer plenty of privacy. Kitchen facilities too basic to cook with. Nice enough place and would stay there again if it weren’t for the noise at night

    I liked the quality of the rooms and the localization of the hostel, really near to the center. Nevertheless, I went into some bad situations. First, there was not seat in one of the men toilets on the 1st floor. As well, in the toilet on the ground floor there was no toilet paper, and it was designed for disabled people. Second, the bathrooms were not very clean, mainly the sinks on the 1st floor. Third, in the same floor some bathrooms had no soap. I think you should improve your service.
