    Nice family-vibe hostel in the city. They’re right next to a shopping centre with everything you need and have free weekly meals at the hostel too. Chilled vibe during the week and a fun atmosphere at the weekend, but noise kept down after midnight! Will definitely be back :)

    I stood here for two weeks. I had a very good stay. The hostel is very clean, the stuff members / the manager are really nice but the best are: the beds ! Never had such a good bed in a hostel before. Totally recommend this hostel.

    Basic place to sleep, cheap so can't expect too much. Good people in the centre of town but no real place to sit and chill everyone is on top of eachother. Good for a night or 2.

    Staff are friendly and create new activities to meet everyone but the smell was terrible... sewer. They tried to fix it but could stay on the hall. And the hostel is kind of a old building and we slept on the first floor, couldn’t sleep all night, too noisy. But the room was beautiful, just some details that was not good unfortunately.

    The hostel was fine despite the fact there was no food storage. All of the fridges and the cabinets were full. Additionally there isn’t a good place to just sit down outside of the dinning room. Most people are long term tenants.

    Their description says "often referred to as the flashpackers on Broadway" - no mate, you're not. Right from the start the place was a mess, cigarette butts around front door, dirty shoes all through hallway, room smelt like way too much air freshener covering mould (room 16), aircon turned on smelt worse, windowsills were covered in dust and hair, windows were locked closed, bathrooms were gross - not even a shelf to put a toiletry bag on. Lots of people live there. Many reviews here are paid

    Most of the people we’re clearly living there for long time, which isn’t a problem itself but because of it there we’re lots of stuff lying everywhere. Rooms are really small which made it hard to even walk on the floor without stepping on someone elses stuff. Social distancing was impossible. Staff was really nice and helpful.
