    The best hostel I have been visiting. The location is perfect for 3 minutes from Dam square and restaurants/shops. Capsule beds were an amazing experience. Enough space and privacy. All areas were clean and modern. The bar was very good (included a billiard table). The atmosphere was amazing and I met nice people there. I recommend this hostel to everybody. Nothing bad things to say. Definitely value for money.

    Clean hostel with a great location. Would go again, tho they could clean the toilets a little more often and make a nicer hangout area. The seats in front of the hostel are the best tho.

    I think the most important thing before booking here is just to be fully aware of what to expect. I knew that and I was fine. Pod privacy and comfort were great, clean bathrooms, helpful staff, easy access to central station. The location is loud, no way around that. The outside noise didn’t bother me, but the late roommates did. They spoke at normal volumes, tripping and making noise around midnight. For the price and location, I was willing to put up with that, though my sleep suffered.

    Very Good

    This is a great hostel to stay at if you're traveling as a group. If you're traveling solo, you won't meet anyone here. Yes there's a bar downstairs, but it's often full of random tourists looking for an Irish pub or to watch sports. Bathrooms are okay but ran out of toilet paper each day I was there. Showers are cleaned often. Dorm rooms are kind of cool. Not typical bunk beds but kind of pods that give lots of privacy. Door to street locks but is often propped open.

    Very Good

    28 Feb 2020
    I'd recommend this hostel depending on the type of trip you have in mind. If you plan to party, meet and getting around easily, this is the place. Even though the bedroom are crowded, the kind of bunk beds give you privacy and the toilets are in very good shape. Though if the bedroom is in the 1st floor, you'll hear the music from the pub, but there's free ear plugs at the reception if you don't mind that. Though if you want a quiet weekend away, you might want to reconsider.

    Waaaaay too loud. Even for me who loves parties it was pounding until 3am. Not worth it. Very small units and overall the atmosphere is weird. Wont be going back.
