    Honestly, a really lovely hostel. It’s really chill and relaxed. The staff are super friendly and become your friends. Just a heads up, the hostel is situated on top of a hill and it’s a total pain to get up there while carrying your bags.

    Loved the view at the top of the hill where he castle is! Had a private room which was very enjoyable and not too much more expensive. Staff was helpful and was there when we needed.

    Cool location. Nice staff. Kitchen area was really loud at night so made it hard to sleep as all the sound rose up. Beds could have been a lot sturdier

    Great location close to the university, with a nice view of the harbour and everything you need in walking distance. The all you can eat-breakfast for 2€ was amazing for the price. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The walk from the train station isn’t too bad if you don’t use the first google maps route that leads you up a very steep hill.

    The staff were so amazing, became mates immediately. The garden area felt whimsical, with lots of plants, seats, lamps and a hammock! A great social area. They went out of their way to help us out with anything, and lent us an iron. The rooms were fine. The location was perfect, down the hill to the town, and up the hill to the piazza and funicular (definitely go up there for great hiking!)

    A bit of a hike up and down each day, but a great view and pretty location. We enjoyed the locker space and the beds were comfy. Showers were questionable.

    I enjoyed my stay, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The only draw back is that it isn't very easy to get to because you can't arrive right at the front door. It's a bit of a climb and hard if you have lots of heavy bags.

    Very Good

    Good places to meet people and friendly staff, however I did wait 10 minutes for one to show up at the front desk to check in. The location is great and within walking distance of most things. Luggage storage is good. Nice showers and comfy beds with big lockers for all your stuff. They have a quiet policy I think past 11 however that was not maintained and noise went past 1am which made it hard to sleep. Good kitchen and good value for money.
