    My first time staying in a hostel. The rooms and bathrooms were tidy, although I did say the soap needed to be refilled on the bathroom and for the 2 nights we were there there wasn’t any. However, the staff were so kind and helpful! The room was exactly how it looks online, and everyone in the hostel was quiet and respectful of eachother. The kitchen facilities were good, we didn’t eat breast but that looks good too. There wasn’t much of a social atmosphere though, everyone kept to themselves

    Nice hostel with a good location in the city center. Stuff was really helpful, the only thing we didnt like were the paid lockers - It was not possible to leave your stuff for free. And the Kitchen was really dark and there were some facilities that we missed. Overall It was clean and safe so we had a nice stay.

    Great location,was super easy to get to and has a metro line just next to it. Location was great for getting to the older parts of the city and around the more urban areas as well as bars under and next to the hostel. Hostel has amazing social space and cafe downstairs was great. Kitchen area was good just a-little dark and needed a-bit of a clean but great equipment and oven to use. Rooms were great and very open planned even without curtains they still felt private enough in each bunk. Only issue we had

    Nice hostel and great location near the river. Cool cafe downstairs with a good amount of seats and places to pop open a laptop if you need to do some work while on the move. Rooms are airy and big, but the rooms facing the street are very loud on the weekends as there are bars right outside. No aircon in the room I was in, so leaving the windows open at night means you hear everything - just something to keep in mind if you're a light sleeper! Communal kitchen is small but has the essentials

    Staff & location were great. The women’s bathrooms were busy and not clean in the morning. 10 bed dorm was noisy but also expected with a larger room.

    The common area and the location of this hostel was very nice. We walked everywhere, and the area felt safe. However, bring your own ear plugs. There was a lot of noise from the outside, and the bunk beds made a lot of noises. Also, big luggage won’t fit in the locker, but you can arrange your stuff in there.

    Unfortunately the hostel rents their space for private events, which means that there is no real hostel community atmosphere. Also there is a coffee shop, so you never know who is a hostel guest and who just a paying costumer. While I was there, not a single community event took place. When I arrived in the evening the bathrooms were very dirty (hair lying everywhere on the sinks). I was put as a girl in a room with only guys. But good location and the rooms look nice.
