    Obviously great location, great kitchen, clean, and all that good stuff. Just don’t come here for a social atmosphere. I found many of the people staying here to be traveling in large groups, families, couples, and older people. Not ideal for a solo backpacker as the social scene was basically nothing. If you don’t need a hostel for the social aspect then this is the place for you. But then what are you doing in a hostel?

    Not a party hostel but nonetheless a pretty chilled out place. There’s no lift but the stairs aren’t too challenging. Right in the city centre so close to attractions, restaurants, shops, trams. Rooms were spacious, especially with the 14 bed dorms. Bathrooms were clean. It is an older building and can rattle when a large truck or bus comes by but still comfy. Great views of the river and city from the room especially at night.
