    Good communication about how to get in to the property because I was arriving late. Good location in the heart of the city, but quiet, and I slept well. Room was clean and comfortable, the kitchen and lounge facility were good, and the breakfast each day was plentiful. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    Centrally located for the town. Sauna is nice. The cafe downstairs gives small discounts to hostel stayers with nice buffet options and is generally quite a good cafe. Take an eye mask if you're sensitive to light when sleeping for summer.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. Lovely staff. Very kind people & they always attend to you well. The food buffet system was also very nice. I'd suggest adding more variety to breakfast like they do with lunch. The security system is very nice & the best thing that I liked was the cleanliness. There was no foul smell & the place got cleaned regularly. One suggestion that I'd like to give would be to add a whiteboard maybe near the reception where travelers can post plans & others can join.

    The hostel was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. It is a bit close to the city center. The staff was very nice and very helpful. The atmosphere was really awkward, no one talks to the other :\

    Super clean hostel, with nice staff. It'd be great if the kitchen area would be a bit bigger and it's missing the social vibe a bit, besides that it's very great place to stay at.

    Clean, organised and functional. Ideal for the hiker and train traveller just passing through, although a struggle to find in the dark with the city streets disrupted by repairs.
