    The hostel is located very much at the center, with well facilitated kitchen and garden to hang out. Accommodation wise, it was quite good and and value for money. However, we were bit disappointed that the bars were closed inside during weekdays, only being opened at weekend as told to us by the staff. But due to its location, there are couples of bars open next to the hostel. Overall, it was a good experience over here!

    The kitchen is very well equipped, clean and very welcoming. The bathrooms on the other hand weren't that clean at all.

    Good, clean and well maintained hostel. Lacks atmosphere but I guess this is due to covid. The rooms are spacious and are clean. The beds in my opinion were uncomfortable but my partner said they were fine. Great location as it is so close to the shopping district and old town. Staff could have been a little more helpful and cheerier but I had no major issues. Overall, above average hostel. Good for price!

    It was a nice and clean hostel in a good location, however we did not have a good experience with the private rooms. In our case we shared a 'hotel room“ with two old men- we had our own room but kitchen and bathroom were shared. We, two 18 year old women felt very unsafe. They had their door constantly open and we were scared they might do something to us. Advice for hostel: in rooms like that maybe you should check what age/ gender you put together in a room- would be more comfortable that way
