    Could not have been better in terms of location, facilities, everything. It's worth the extra money. Staff is great, especially Ollie - he's the man! Really went out of his way to make our stay even better. Don't miss the Kunstmuseum, and a late afternoon swim in the river - turns into quite the party.

    Best hostel I've stayed in. Staff extremely friendly and generous, facilities cleaned well and a good size kitchen, great that they offer free cereal, rice and pasta. Common area large enough to accommodate for everyone. Good location in terms of the train station and shopping street right around the corner. Would definitely recommend!

    The only "flaw" I can really think of is that reception is not 24h, but the staff was so helpful, and everything you could possibly need was made available to you. Location is great. Definitely the best deal in town.

    The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There is currently construction outside during the day but they stop fairly early so it wasn't too bothersome.

    Great location in the center of the city. Thought that paying for a shower was a bit much.

    Whole night drilling noise SO loud that even with the window closed earphones/plugs it wasn’t possible to sleep. There is a phone located at reception but it is labelled emergency use. I was so nice about it but staff were so rude. Not believing me and demanding I pay immediately (literally chewing breakfast) despite me not asking for a refund and also still having another 2 nights there. Advised in afternoon rudely that it was “dentist equipment” so no cancel - still I had never asked for one!

    There is only 1 washer and 1 dryer, and the usage is not by cycle but by electricity timing. Other places I have been to have charged their machines by cycle
