    Just left friends hostel 2 days ago, the hostel is more like a family room which I found perfect. I stayed in the female dorm and it had an iron, dressing table hair dryer etc. For a female solo traveler I would definitely recommend this hostel!!!

    We arrived to the hostel at around 10pm to be taken to an apartment located about ten minutes walk away. This was a private apartment and suited our group of 7 perfectly. The flat was very clean, fresh sheets and towels were provided. There was a lovely en-suite with the apartment and the apartment had two locked doors and then an entrance which required a fob to enter. The apartment was more than satisfactory for us and was a bargain price.

    Located right next to the Ruin Bars in the centre of the city. We stayed in an apartment which was round the corner from the main hostel but was clean and had an air conditioning vent. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and printed out our train tickets for us. Overall a positive experience.

    Its a 20 min walk to the bridge, its a nice neighboorhood because there is movement in the streets at any time of the day but not much noise. The main tram stops 50mts away. There are a bunch of restaurants+ supermarkets really close. The female dorm is huge, there are security lockers. Kitchen is very nice as well. Would recommend 100%

    Super spacious dorm room with a cute little balcony! Not a super social vibe but still a great hostel to stay to chill out if you don’t mind that kind of vibe! Would recommend :)

    Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this hostel. The staff messed up my booking several times and wasn't really helpful in resolving the issues. During my stay I had to change rooms twice. I booked a five-bed-dorm, but they wanted to put me into an eight-bed-dorm. Only after referring to my booking confirmation did they agree to respect my booking choice. Still, I had to stay most of the time in an eight- and a six-bed-dorm - the latter was for the number of beds in the room very small.
