    I spent 4 nights in the female dorm. It was an cool experience staying in such traditional building. The room was cozy, the lockers had ample capacity. The staff are helpful in showing you the facilties and they have useful information for navigating the city. Shower/bathing room was good too. I basically used this place as a place to sleep after my day adventures.

    The staff was incredibly kind and helpful!! The building was very nice and a great experience to know that you are staying in a building that is 100 years old. Because of the age of the building, it is a very quiet atmosphere, perfect for a solo traveler. The overall environment is friendly and welcoming. Everything is locked so you receive a set of keys, however, you are welcome and encouraged to use the facilities in any building.

    This is such a lovely hostel and an added feature is that the building is 100 years old. Staff were really nice and professional and super appreciative of my stay. It is located under 2km from the main station and close to attractions as well. If further away, accessible by walking which I did or by train. Hostel was super clean and nice they provide toiletries, hairdryer and tea/coffee and water free of charge. Would stay here again 🙂
