    Fabulous

    Overall a good hostel. Nothing special or fancy, and the wifi did not work from the room, which was a bit disappointing. When I checked in, the receptionist asked me to pay the whole price, not the price minus the deposit I had already paid on hostelworld.com, but it got straightened out quite easily. Very nice bathrooms and very clean

    Hostel is okay to stay for some nights, but the wifi is quite bad and only available in the lobby, also small bathroom for this amount of guests. But it is good connected by subway and there is a family markt close by.

    The location is good and the staff is friendly and speak good English, but the cleanliness need to be improved. Also the furniture and room appearance look old and sloppy. For similar prices you can get better rooms in many hostels in the city.

    We booked a room on the website for a very good price but the hostel emailed us to inform us about a problem about the prices. They didn't give us any discount for the inconvenience. The room was close to the stairs and we could hear all the voices of customers until late in the night. Pictures on the website didn't correspond to our room (humidity on the walls, not clean at all!). I forgot my phone cable and sent several emails to get it back... they never answered! Won't never go there again!

We also have free travel information, with metro maps and a booking service to help arrange daily tours and travel tickets.
