    The best thing is that there are no bunk beds and the rooms aren’t small. It was pretty comfortable. It’s also close to S-bahn, so location is good as well.

    Very clean and spacious shared dorm in a cute bit of town. No bunk beds (woohoo!), good lockers for everyone and a courtyard good for relaxing. The communal spaces weren't really promoted, doors have to be locked from the inside manually and it would be great to see some signs advertising quiet times for the noisy residents. Apart from that a lovely hostel for the money. Out of town a little bit but close to train/bus and plenty of food places.

    The woman at the front desk was very nice, I also really liked that the beds were individual, not bunk beds, and large lockers. It’s a bit far from the city center, but it’s a nice walk or the S-Bahn close by. I wish there had been a common place and a kitchen.

    Super clean, in a good neighborhood. Not much of an atmosphere but good Comfy beds and nice place to stay. No power point next to the bed so if you wanted to charge anything you have to leave it on a communal table near the door which isn't great

    In my view a very classical hostel, slightly old-fasioned. The dorm had a normal lock, which meant that you depended on your roommates whether the door would be locked if everyone was out or not. There is also no common room. Overall bit of a strange atmosphere with my roommates, might be due to the off season. Nice and clean bathroom. Environmentally very friendly.
