    we had a family room all to ourselves with our own bathroom which was very convenient. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was great to have the free breakfast too and a nice area to sit outside too. I would stay here again.

    Overall I enjoyed my stay. Hostel is clean, staff are friendly and location is great. The continental breakfast is a bonus. Only negative was the drunk ppl shouting in the corridors and a staff member was helping someone find their bed, so he came into my room and turned the lights on and when the staff member left my room he left the light on. This was very annoying at 3.30am.

    Location is unbeatable, so close to the bus station and the city center! Breakfast is very simple, so don't expect too much - when I stayed that was just toast bread with butter and jam and milk with cereals. But the drink selection for breakfast is lovely - various types of coffee, flavoured tea, juices. The biggest downside I'd say is the bathroom...Very small, the water splashes everywhere onto the floor, lack of ventilation. Not great if the room is full of people.

    One of the staff member was very rude to our group. We came back late to the hostel and the lady stopped us at the gate like she is our mother and started interrogating us. This was unexpected and although we did not react too much to her interrogation she literally pushed me in the gate towards the end of the conversation. Not sure if this was due to us being Indians or something else but unacceptable behaviour by the lady.

    While there, my hoodie was stolen from my room. The manager told me I should have locked it in a cage. There were no cages in the room. Turns out, they had been missing for at least the 4 days I was there and the staff hadn't noticed... the manager later promised by mail she would contact other guests about it and otherwise find a solution for me. After that, she didn't respond to my e-mails anymore... no hoodie, no cages, no solution... Reception staff were very nice and helpful though.
