    Quiet (when I was there), helpful staff, slightly out of centre location with plenty of green space nearby.

    The house is very old. An interesting place to live in after you've visited a history museum. But it's not been as bad of an experience as many reviews suggest would be. In fact I've had a pleasant stay. I liked the fact that it is quiet. There is room for improvement though.

    Mixed reviews. Pros: affordable, friendly staff, free breakfast, good location (albeit hilly). Cons: Messy/dirty rooms, lack of soap in several bathrooms, steep/narrow stairs inconvenient for luggage.

    A basic hostel that will meet your needs if you just need somewhere to sleep. The wifi was unreliable and breakfast was nothing to get excited about (but free so can't really complain). The location isn't where you would typically expect to find a hotel/hostel but it is about 5-10 minutes from a tram stop so not too bad. I will happily stay there again if I needed a place in that area of the city.

    The hostel is really small, and located on a hill in the middle of nowhere, more than 30 mins from the station and almost any sort of life. Good only if you have a car and look for a place to use as a base for sleeping. Rooms and toilets are clean and breakfast is very poor. Stuff is inconsistent, and look like they don't actually care about you and the whole place.

    I sent an email saying I’d arrive late at the hostel, which they replied not to be a problem. However upon arrival I ended up waiting in the rain for over 15 minutes, knocking on the door before a guest came to let me in on her way to the bathroom. After getting checked in, my bed was not made with clean linens to which I had to wait even longer. Kitchen has absolutely no spices. No salt, no pepper. As grateful as I was to have a roof over my head, I would not stay here again.
