    Very nice hostel (one of the better ones we stayed at). The staff is very nice and the rooms are clean. The only downside was that we could only check in after 16:00 (had to wait a little bit, but we could leave our stuff there). They also offer bicycle rental (which was cheap and very helpfull).

    As far as affordable hostels go, the Bird Hostel puts others to shame. It's located in a fantastic location, a brisk walk away from major sightseeing places. They offer a great complementary breakfast, clean facilities, free locks for luggage and valuables, friendly staff, and even different options for pillows. They offer free ear plugs to compensate, but the dorms can get loud during quiet times anyway, so firm reminders to guests to mind their volume in the dorms would be nice.

    I enjoyed my stay in this hostel quite a lot, and even extended from 2 to 3 nights. I stayed in a 12 bed female dorm. There was a wall socket, 2 USB ports, a light, a curtain and wooden safe by every bed. The showers are very good, they have 3 washing and 5 drying machines plus a shoe dryer. Breakfast was great and included. Atmosphere was good, although the common area and kitchen could be bigger.

    Hostel is clean and the staff are really friendly/ helpful. The free breakfast was really good!! Esp the homemade bread. Location is okay, quite far away from most things but the imperial palace is a 2min walk round the corner. It could get quite noisy at night but the hostel does give you earplugs.

    Very clean and good facilities. Staff were not the most friendly, do not give you any info upon arrival. Also as a solo traveller, definitely not the most social.
