    Little bit out of the center of the city up a hill so be prepared to walk a bit. Quite an old place so not in the best of condition. Beds are quite cheap and not the most comfortable but OK for a few days. Quite a few people living/working here so not the best atmosphere for solo travelers. Kitchen is fairly big and has good equipment available.

    The location, building, staff all wonderful. But holy cow, for a place advertised as having a FIBER CABLE internet connection its complete trash. Sometimes it wouldn't even load basic web pages. Either they are not being honest about the type of internet they offer or the router settings are completely wack!!!

    The hostel is located on a hill so if you are not travelling by car it is something you should think about! The intercity stop is about 17 min away.

    Nice hostel... the kitchen downstairs was well equipped but the one on the upper floor was way too small and old. The bathrooms were clean but the one on the upper floor was very very old (old bathtub etc.). The location was ok (10min walk from city centre) and the people working there were friendly and nice.
