    Nice and clean hostel next to central station. The staff was friendly and organize things as free pizza night and free pancakes in the weekend. The beds are not the best, bit unstable. So location is perfect, bathrooms bit old but clean, I think just good value for your money, cause it’s not that expensive! :-)

    Only stayed overnight for somewhere to sleep, so can't comment on the atmosphere. Good communication prior to arriving and staff were friendly. Free Wifi with decent coverage. The room I was in didn't have any windows, so was quite stuffy; the fans provided some relief. There was an attached bathroom, although the shower was leaking and there was water everywhere - again, I only stayed there briefly so don't know if this was a one-off. The toilet outside of the dorm was fine. Decent overall.

    Real short: left after 2 days, room with 8 people and NO window, we had to leave the door open (even at night) to get a bit of air, room still felt like a sauna even with multiple fans on 24/7, irrespective of temp. outiside, bathroom was cleaned daily but still not clean, kitchen is the tiniest I've seen in a hostel, would have to eat somewhere else, shower was dripping, when I told reception they said someone would come and look after it in 3 days, Not negative But important:many steep stairs

    We only booked because we wanted a cheap private room for a one night stay so this did the job. This hostel would be so much nicer if they just gave it a bit of a make over. It’s a bit run down/dated but that is reflected in the price. It was very much a case of you get what you pay for. The lock on our door was temperamental and I found myself locked out at one point but the staff were helpful and friendly.

    We were quite disappointed by our stay. Staff was friendly but it was an older hostel with a few problems. Our room and hallway smelt like cat pee, there were cockroaches dead and alive in our room, the pillows were disgustingly yellow, and beds had a lot of stains. The bathrooms were very small and dirty, mould in the showers. We were there for one night and would not stay again.

    There is no air con advertised but the rooms are extremely hot and stuffy despite the small fans provided. Had booked for 3 nights, went into the kitchen on my second night to find two rats having a wander around, in all my times in hostels around the world have never experienced that. Needless to say we left ASAP the next morning. Staff did give refund for the last night we were meant to stay, but weren’t too bothered about the rats, just had an excuse like they seem to for any other issue
