    This is an amazing hostel for solo backpackers. The staff is very friendly and they do a great job making sure that travellers are having a good time. They have activities on a daily basis, but some standout activities are bike tours with Michiel, and summer drinks / beer garden tours with Monica and Paula. Would highly recommend trying out this hostel.

    Fantastic hostel! So many events at the hostel which were super fun and most were free! Wonderfully fun and helpful staff, great atmosphere with people hanging out in the evenings. My room was much nicer than I was expecting! Extremely clean, excellent location. Much more fun than staying in a hotel and a great way to meet people to go around with! Will definitely be back! Thank you, Hostel Downtown, for a wonderful stay!!

    Would definitely recommend this hostel. The location is amazing, about a 5 min walk to the Old Town. The room was very clean and spacious. We enjoyed doing the pub crawl and the hostel organises loads of activities which is a good way to meet people.

    Best hostel I’ve stayed in for a great price. Had a private 3 person room on the top floor with a great city view. Have every accommodation you could ever need and have a lovely staff with plenty of activities if you find yourself bored. Great location too!! Gil is super funny, and Paola makes great breakfast.

    Very nice location and staff. Very nice facilities offered too like free towels and padlock with deposit. Don’t book in summer because there’s no air conditioner and the room gets too hot.

    Excellent hostel in the best location. Could do with some more fans in the room (would really make a difference) but otherwise amazing. Breakfast is hit and miss as it changes every day; however, you can check what's on offer each day before buying the token. Room size, reception area etc. was great but this hostel's best asset is it's location - I took public transport once the entire trip, as everything else was within walking distance.

    Breakfast was nice, staff were nice but was a little confused about the details of the walking tours. Bathrooms are clean but humid, need some more ventilation. Location is awesome, walking distance to everything. Highly recommend Suzie's walking tours. She's the nicest guide, told great stories and was funny! Would 100% stay here next time!
