    Super hostel. Kindly and well informed a bit under equipped. Black mould in kitchen ceiling needs addressing. A fan in each bedroom would make sense.bring mosquito spray for bed. Huge white high thread count bedsheets. Great price. Central. Electric bike and car hire just up the street. 24 hour café anda daytime supermarket just behind hostel. Use of rooftop terrace possible ?

    Beds were nice, kitchen only in the main building which made preparing food difficult. The place looked clean from bed bugs, but just as I was leaving, I saw a bed bug on the luggage locker. Walking on it. Hopefully just a one time thing, the bed didn't look like there was bugs living in it.

    Very Good

    11 Jul 2019
    Found a dead bedbug in the sheets but think it was from the laundry. Location is really good - just outside the old city and staff are very helpful. No latches on the doors to the hostel which made changing a bit precarious but we got provided with good lockers. It’s a quiet hostel which is fitting to the area but you can literally hear everything from other rooms as it’s all very open - which is fine to be honest. Very nice bathrooms although we did find the odd weird bug

    The staff was helpful to the best of their abilities and were all friendly. The walk from the central station is about 15 minutes and takes you through the city centre, which is quite a warm welcome to the beautiful city. The one-room interior of the building meant that you could hear everyone late at night and early in the morning. Quite loudly. The kitchen smelt damp and didn’t make me want to eat there but the common room was okay. On my last night I spotted bedbugs, so be mindful of that!

    Location was very good. Walls are too thin or have gaps, so you can hear too much of everything in the other rooms or outside the rooms. Luckily everyone was respecting that and was quite but thus there's NO hostel-life where you could really meet people. The kitchen is there but veeeery dark and in part not so clean..

    Bed bugs everywhere! Walking on the walls and ceilings. According to their size, they should have been there for quite some time now. When we told the hostel that there were bed bugs, they called an exterminator immediately (and we got a refund)... but if you read the reviews of this hostel for earlier years, you can find that this has been a problem for several years now (2017,2018,2019). The extermination has not been helpful I suppose..

    **BLACK MOULD** — the downstairs social area (kitchen, games, etc) was incredibly damp and the entire ceiling was covered in dangerous black Mould. The hostel was nowhere near as nice as the photos we saw online — it was dirty, very smelly, damp, and incredibly hot (no ventilation, AC, fans - inside a cave!). The staff were grumpy and they had double-booked one of our beds. They were only available for a few hours a day on the reception desk, and left door open to public when not there!
