    A really good hostel in a convenient location close to the city center. The rooms are quite clean and comfortable. There is a good breakfast and the terrace is perfect in the evening for relaxing and getting to know your roommates.

    Not so close from the city centre, but that was not a real problem for us. Propose a free "breakfast" which is nice, even if it's just some toasts. We were disappointed regarding the "bar" which is just a fridge at the reception desk, we were expecting something else. We were 2 girls traveling and honestly we did not feel comfortable in the hostel, some men way older than us were flirting with us, doing lousy jokes... Other guests do not respect the no noise policy, LOADS of small kids...

    Having to pay extra for air on comes at a bit of a shock, especially since the fan in the room barely worked and made loud enough noises to keep us awake most of the night. The room was extremely warm without a/c and with the windows open we were also woken up by people talking, smoking and hammering next door.

    Rude staff, terrible atmosphere for a solo traveler, everyone seemed so unfriendly and unwelcoming. Room was OK, lacking facilities. Maybe OK for one night sleep and that’s it.
