    This place was amazing! The staff is at your service 24/7 and the atmosphere is vibey and young. The beds are super comfy and the showers are like a 5 star hotel... the terrace is amazing! Tips: bring your towel and a lock. No need for a international charger port, the rooms come with usb ports. The only thing is that the location is a little sketchy so be carful if you are a girl . Try to not go out alone at night ;)

    We arrived in the evening, the staff was kind and cheerful. We booked 2 mixed dorm beds and he gave us a private dorm room with bathroom inside- that was extremely nice of him!

    Very friendly staff and well-maintained building. The square in front of the building did not feel overly safe, but it's a big city and not that big of a deal. Right off of the Colonel Fabian stop, which was super helpful. We would have appreciated it if there was more focus on ensuring guests actually followed Covid regulations. Unfortunately, numerous people crowded us in the elevators and few wore masks.

    Very clean and modern, staff was pleasant. A little pricey but not bad. Like the rooftop bar but things are expensive and you aren’t allowed to bring in outside food

    The hostel is great but it doesn't have a place to chill and relax. The cafe Fabien closes at 11am which is super anoying, so I would not recommend it for digital nomads, for tourism is perfect.

    Bad neighbourhood for a female solo-traveling. Many men out on the streets, didn't feel safe when it got dark outside. Also very far away from all the main attractions - only nice if you enjoy really long walks or taking the metro every time. Hostel didn't have any common rooms when I stayed there. Rooms were nice tho with good enough facilities.
