    As far as hostels go, this place is great! Clean room, hot shower with pressure, great location and I found the bed comfortable. Option to hire towels, adaptors and hairdryers, and there's a convenient breakfast option. Underbed lockers as well as lockers for hire - both with plenty of space. The pub itself has a great atmosphere and the staff are lovely. Be aware, like all Dutch buildings, the staircases are steep and narrow.

    Good price for what it offers and its location. The bar next to it is very nice Irish bar, you get discount on everything for staying at the hostel. Good atmosphere (bar area), pool table and lockers are available. Rooms are ok, nothing fancy, bathroom included. Beds are noisy but come with a light and usb outlet for charging your phone. You get a locker underneath the beds and they give you a lock if you don't have one. If you need a place to stay for a couple of perfect.

    Located right in the middle of the city with everything a short walking distance. All the staff were incredibly nice and welcoming. The atmosphere of the bar was really good with, TVs to watch sport and live entertainment. The room was ok but found a lot of dust in easily reachable places. If you don’t mind staying in a hostel (we booked 2 whole rooms) then it’s definitely value for money. The facilities were all very good, only problem was my shower was rather weak but was fine for wash.

    We stayed here last minute, and were happy the inn was able to accommodate us! Close to the central station, and on a very nightlife cantered street. The inn is also a bar and they give you discounts on drinks, major plus! The staff was friendly save for one person, and the mixed rooms weren’t the best (shower would only do cold water), but the staff was readily available to help the issue. If you’re looking for a place to rest your head, this isn’t a bad choice!

    My key didnt work every single time I got up the super steep stairs to the top floor. Ive got some health issues so this was really a difficult hostel to get in and out of. Would be helpful in the description to know about the staircase. There were mice and bugs in the rooms. No screens on the windows. I was covered in mosquito bites from the bugs flying into the hostel at night. I had to go up and down the stairs at least 3 times every time I got back to get a functioning key. 3 mice found

    Extremely loud guests had no sleep l, staff didn’t help with bags and had to help other people with bags up three flights of stairs while they sat on their ars. Extremely loud bar environment downstairs even in the hostel. Beds very shaky and extremely annoying.
