    Good location. Just less than 10 mins walk from central station. Near to Dam square and next to a coffee shop. But you will smell some weed smell during first enter or at the corridor. But, it is not strong smell is just a mild smell. One thing is the reception is not on site, you have to walk further to another hostel reception to check in and check out. The reception is not 24 hours so if you need to check out earlier than 8am. You have to drop your key before 3am in the mid night!

    The customer service at the check in is Great , but at the entrance the security and the bar under the hostel are not great , they forcing to buy something if u like to stay. The wifi is not connecting at all, i did ask the staff at the bar but they give me the same password that actually doesn't work. The Shower is blocked ever time take shower the water keep on floating, and the beg sheet you see they are yellowish. However, the location is supper great. but there are things to work on.

    The location is good but there was quite a creepy atmosphere, to the point that going to shower or to the toilets almost did not feel safe. The signs hung everywhere kind of let us think that weird people would try to break in the building. Also the toilets and shower were not very clean. Plus going to the shower when there is no intermediate space to change and you have to walk half naked to not get your things wet is really bad.
