    The key fob would not open the door, it was late at night and no one was around. I actually didn't stay here, though I booked and paid for the room, I had to find other accommodation for the night

    We loved our stay at Hostel Uppelink. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. The hostel is located in a beautiful old building located right off of the main canal in town making for some great scenery. Walking distance from most attractions and nightlife. Would definitely stay again!

    Hostel was generally good, the breakfast was good for the price and decent bathroom ratio. However one of our bunk beds did not have a railing on one side and was not against the wall because of the ceiling design so it was quite possible to fall out while asleep and very difficult to get up and down with the ceiling. Otherwise good and a great location and good security.

    There seemed to be a lot of people staying at the hostel just because a hotel was too expensive. Bathrooms are smelly. Staff is super nice, good facilities, great location.
