    The room of 10 is prefect for my friends and I. As we were working the whole weekend we were there and had a lot of luggage, the fact our room was the bottom floor was the best. Also the shower rooms are quite nice. Will definitely be coming back

    For only $21, it was about as you'd expect, and not too bad. It's a bit shabby and unorganized, but everything still functions OK and there's free toast, cereal, and tea in the morning, even after you haven't slept your best. The biggest plus is it's right on the bus route and not far from the train. When I arrived, the front door was standing open and I had to wait a bit for someone to check me in. The 4-bed room was cramped with little room for luggage, so it's best if you're traveling light.

    The dorm rooms were nice and the kitchen is fully equipped. The staff is ok, one guy walked around in his underwear the whole time, the other forgot to give us our key deposit back. Breakfast is good, they even have chocolate cream and jam. You can also enjoy free juice trough the whole day. The hostel is located a frw minutes from the bus station and about 20 minutes from the City Hall. Definetely not the worst hostel i have ever been to.

    The weirdest bunch of people I have ever had the displeasure to sleep in a room with. Obviously not the hostels fault but it came along with a bit of a grim outlook and facilities. Location was great for me and the reason I booked it, was completely fine for a night

    The hostel could do with a good clean and a repaint. It looks really tired. There was also mold in the shower.

    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.
