    Great hostel, love the odd interieur and the old building. The location is really good as well. Contra: you can‘t lock the doors of the dorms, since they lost the key. There are spints to lock valuables in tho.

    It was a good stay I just wish that they had small towels to wash with when bathing because I was given a big towel to dry off with but no small towel to wash with.

    Thank you, Kurt, for being so accommodating (in my error!)! And, for the help given by staff. May just have to check that outlet in the girls bathroom. :)

    What I loved most was the historic feel to the place, in sync with the heritage look of the streets outside. That said, it does have a bit of a gloomy feel to it, perhaps why most people stayed in the rooms instead of sitting in thr common area. I like how this is one of the few hostels that is fair to men by offering men only dorms. Shower rooms could improve a little but adequate. Smell of weed (probably from people smoking downstairs) bothers me a bit.

    Beautiful old building! Quirky, charming decor, recent renovations to many common facilities. Unfortunately there are lots of cockroaches enjoying it, too. Night “quiet hours” were mostly observed by guests, but the exception in my room was impossible to sleep through or ignore. Not sure if I’d recommend it or not; it’s a beautiful space, great rates, good location, but… also ick.

    I have stayed in this hostel a few times over the last 5 years and every time the experience is negative. Last time when I arrived to the hostel, the front desk person (I think he was also the manager) was rude, unprofessional and unfriendly. He told me that he didn't have my reservation and although I showed him that I had booked it through the website, he kept denying it. After he finally found my reservation, without even simply apology, he made me wait for 30 min before he could check me

    Window broke and cannot be closed. Door cannot be closed. Staff yelling at me because I prayed in the room and accused me naked in the room. How come I naked when i was praying with window open in the evening. Gate closed at 9. They accept long-term tenant and put them with me in aame dorm. No towel. They said if you make noise it will disturb other tenant but actually with broken window, you can hear all noise from outside even at 12am. Kitchen closed at 9.30 pm and open at 7.30 am.
