    The room was clean, only the bathroom was dirty but only for a couple hours. Personal was really nice and the atmosphere was nice, they had live music in the bar (it was kinda loud, you couldn’t talk too much) but overall I would definitely recommend this place. I stayed for 3 nights.

    Location is great, right around the corner from the Dom. However, it was very noisy. So many bachelor parties with shouting people. But that is to be expected with this combination of location and price.

    Decent but not much more than that. Clean, safe but limited facilities - not sure if there was a kitchen? If there was, I wasn't told. Staff are a mixture. Guy on check out offered to store my bags, guy who checked me in send annoyed that I didn't have a euro deposit for the keycard and huffily announced that Germany was "still a cash economy".

    Cons: the whole atmosphere of the hostel, rooms is rather not so cozy. i dont think it is cheap though to pay like 24 Euros per night for that quality. cleanyness of the room was ok. Pros: wifi was quick it is 2min from the main station. atms are close as well. Would be cool if hostels would remind people to stay out of dorms if they snore. 1 person ruined the night for the whole room.

    Good value and location if you’re just needing a nights stay. It was reasonably clean however the place is run down. I would not spend more than one night here in Summer as the rooms are terribly hot with no fans in the rooms (which is something most hostels offer) which resulted in having to open the windows all night, and having the listen to the sound of the trains screeching brakes all night. You get what you pay for.

    It’s alright, wouldn’t stay here too long but it’s decent and in my opinion provides everything that a hostel should provide

    Not enough facilities, nowhere to cook a meal. Bathrooms and lockers could have been cleaner. Overall quite shabby hostel but okay value for money and fairly central.

    Location was good, but incredibly loud. Additionally the bathrooms were awful, it seemed like they hadn't been cleaned in a while.

    Not great. Location is amazing right next to the train station and very close to the cathedral etc. but cleanliness of the hostel was not good, not many toilets one of them blocked and out of use everything felt like it would fall apart
