    The private room was absolutely perfect for a neuroscience conference on a budget where sleep was necessary! Everything was clean, staff were helpful jokers, great atmosphere. Only niggle was that someone came in to clean my room without letting me know, it's standard practise and I had all my valuables with me, but a heads-up would've been nice.

    Lovely spot! Staff were fantastic and helpful. We took advantage of the free walking tour in the morning and were very glad we did. Breakfast was stocked well and wifi even worked up in our rooms though the signs say it will not. Would definitely stay again

    Only stayed one night but it was a good one. The hostel seems to have good atmosphere. I would have love to join either the pub crawl or the city tour but my schedule didn't let me. Staff was nice, very supportive. I would have liked a better breakfast, but considering the price of the bed which includes breakfast, it was fair enough.

    We had a trip up in our reservation where our payment at check-in wasn't complete, so they forced us to move rooms in the middle of the weekend. Also, there is a 3-night minimum that we were not aware of so keep that in mind when booking. Otherwise, there were 2 really nice guys at the reception that helped us out when we first got there and they had a lot of opportunities for everyone to do.

    Decent value for the money. Clean, but a little outdated accommodations. I would stay again due to its convenient location next to the airport shuttle bus.

    If it weren’t for two very nice people that I met in my room, I would’ve left the first night. It’s absurd that there aren’t lockers in the room. Instead you can have blind faith that no one in your room will rob you or you can rent a locker down in the basement and if you leave your bag over night it’s €2/night. The bathrooms were good but not enough stalls for one floor when you’re sharing with several rooms. I came for the price, and all in all it was an enjoyable enough stay. Good for travel

    Although the staff were nice and it seems they organize plenty of cool activities, it’s like that’s meant to compensate for subpar facilities. Least comfortable hostel bed I’ve ever had, and I guess this is partly my fault for not researching better, but it’s location next to a train station makes it extremely loud. Only 2 outlets in an 8 bed dorm, nevermind reading lamps or lockers. Only 2 sinks & 3 each toilets & shower stalls for the entire floor, got crowded fast. Won’t return.
