    Couldn't be better!! Although I arrived at midnight, although I only had cards that is out of order at midnight, the reception desk was extremely kind and flexible even allowed me to pay in the morning. Also when I was struggling to open my bedroom door, since it was my first time for unlocking German-type key, a stuff from reception desk passed by and kindly teach me how to. I think he worried me whether to enter my room. Great price, super clean bedroom, silent, warm,

    The hostel was very clean and staff were very polite and helpful. The dorms are large and each bed had an outlet and locker -just missing a light option. There are only two showers for men and two for women on each floor as well as two toilets. In the morning it caused a few problems waiting but they were very clean. Free breakfast is great and has lots of selection. The doors have combination locks that you memorize. I always felt safe and my belongings secure.

    I absolutely loved the 24-hour front desk as I drove from Paris and straight to a 1920s party near the Dom. I didn't get to the hostel until around 0500 and still was able to check in, get my linen, quietly put those on my bed and sleep til 1000. I did not get breakfast but it seemed like a good deal if you avail of it. Alternatively, one could walk to the numerous bakeries and cafes at the hauptbahnhof (main train station).

    Good hostel close to the train station and most attractions. Supermarkets and restaurants are walking distance. Large kitchen area but not great atmosphere. Overall a good stay

    They have the biggest kitchen I’ve ever seen and the common area is also really huge. The location is close to the train station but the street opposite the road doesn’t feel safe at night.

    Very clean hostel. With a great kitchen. However literally no social atmosphere. If you want to go somewhere to meet people this really isn't the place.

    Arrived at around 11 pm and check out in the morning. The guys behind the counter in the night were really cool but the lady in the morning was extremely rude. Needed a towel and she said it'll be 6 odd euros with some deposit. I already had 10 € deposit with them and I didn't have cash on me, only my card. Asked her if she could cancel the amount from my existing deposit or use my card but she didn't care at all and had a blatantly rude look on her face while denying. Apart from that, a 9/10.

    Very Good

    Good location within walking distance to most touristic atractions. Cheap laundry facilites which is a plus. The dorm i booked wasn’t ready. Considering that the check in time is already late, i wasn’t expecting to wait even more. Wifi absolutely sucks, i had no signal in my dorm and the parts where you could get signal it was super slow. The atmposphere is pretty boring with no events to meet fellow travelers. Definitely not a party hostel.

    Not a great atmosphere for meeting people and there didn't seem to be a lot of young people. That said, the location was very close to the train station and Dom and the room was clean.
