    I stayed at this hostel for a few nights at the beginning of April. First off I'd like to highlight the friendly staff working there, specially a French guy and a Dutch girl at the reception, they made my stay a very good one. My room was a shared one and I must say it was quite big... there was also a sink which proved very helpful as you don't have to get out to the bathroom to wash your teeth, drink water. Besides that there was a fully equipped kitchen and the dining room was huge. Greetings

    Helpgul staff, but not so clean. Also not very safe, anyone could just come in. The kitchen closes too early in the afternoon.

    I didn't end up staying, there is an access code to get in the front door, I was a bit tipsy when I got back and must have entered it wrong but then it wouldn't work when I typed it in correctly, I was told reception was open till 4am so I did the buzzer but no one came to let me in. Thankfully I was able to stay at a friend's house but that could have been a disaster. Also there were two local men in their 60s staying in my room. Not ideal. Staff seemed nice but I couldn't recommend this place.

    Rooms were absolutely tiny and had no storage. 8 of us were there for 4 nights and we felt cramped. There was no free floor space whatsoever and the lighting was really low, not ideal for putting make up on. Showers were really nice though and it was cheap.

    The fact that one of the rooms is at the very entrance, before the reception, made it very unprotected against the party noise next to the entrance. We couldn't sleep. The staff was nice, however we came across very unpleasant people in several rooms, which of course is not the fault of the hostel

    The kitchen was huge and the staff were friendly but this was my first time I ever feared for my safety at a hostel and would recommend everyone who reads this to stay away! One night in my dorm multiple very drunk men in their 60s were aggressive and loud in the room, refusing to stop talking and vaping in the room while another 2 other people had s** from 3am-7am. It turned out at least 1 of the drunk men broke into an empty bed and no employees/security are there to stop that from happening.

    level of cleanliness was poor. No lockers in dorms or anywhere secure for belongings. Only 2 power outlets in dorms. Had a private room - cold showers the entire time, excuse from staff was we were showering at busy times - this happened across 3 days both morning and evening. Facilities should be able to accommodate guests. Also no light in our bathroom and staff couldn’t fix it. Said, ‘oh well there’s light from the room’ - so we have to use the toilet with the door open and 1m away from bed?!
