    I had a great time here. Be aware that they have pricing which reflects demand, so as the hostel fills, the rooms get more expensive, and the difference can be significant - my first night, arranged in advance, was about 20 Euro, and the next night which I booked last minute was nearly 30. As an average, it's not bad, but be aware that this is how the pricing works. The best part of the hostel is the programs. They have events every day, all the time, most of them free. Excellent place!

    No chargers on top bunks, linens kept on coming out of Bed as it was too small. Plug sockets charge very slowly. A few more things to do in the common room like a pool table would be nice Room was however very spacious and the lockers were located in a very nice place. Very nice hostel overall. I would come here again.

    Unfortunately, my very pleasant stay was overshadowed by the laziness of the staff. So much so, that I must include this in the review. It seemed that the staff didn't want to help, and when you asked it was met with a feeling that you're bothering them. Apart from a select few members of staff, this hostel is great :)
