    Great hostel with a nice coffee shop and a nice, little kitchen area to cook in. The rooms themselves are spacious and there are walls between beds that give a sense of privacy. The lockers are also big which is a plus. The location itself is a nice and safe neighborhood and is within walking distance to cool restaurants and cafes. The staff is also helpful and kind. Great stay, would stay again!

    We, 2 woman, stayed there for 3 nights in a private room and had everything we needed. The room (including he bathroom) was really big and pretty (high room, beautiful wooden floor, big windows). The hostel in general was modern, had everything we needed and was at a perfect location (5min to walk to the city center). The only "bad" thing was that it was really noisy in the night (traffic and people from the bar below).

    Solo female traveler here— I loved the coffee shop vibes of this places, they have a guest kitchen, staff was kind, laundry if needed, and good location walking distance to the old town. Some down sides was that common areas(coffee shop area, bathrooms) were noticeably quite dirty as well as parts of the room like in the luggage storage drawers. Overall nice hostel, but really hope they improve quality of cleaning as I’ve seen other reviews that mention it.

    Very friendly reception & the beds were very comfortable. The atmosphere was nice however facilities were limited (there were only 2 female toilets per floor). The rooms were very noisy at night from the traffic outside and the rooms had fire doors which slammed every time someone came in/out of the room which made it harder to get a full nights sleep. The shared kitchen was the dirtiest I’ve seen in a hostel. They offer breakfast and dinner for an extra cost but staff did not inform us of this

    Kitchen wasn't great. I was the only female in a mixed dorm for two of my nights so a female only dorm would have been appreciated. Great location and clean.
