    The location is perfect, 5 mins walk from the Dom and Train station. The place is clean, enough bathrooms for the floor. The bar had a Salsa workshop and later live music which was perfect to know people staying in the hostel. I will recommend it further.

    Really good location. It was clean but also something felt slighty 'off'? Uncomfortable beds, my lamp was broken, bathroom door was damaged, hallway smelt funny. It was fine for one night though.

    Hostel was very good! Staff was friendly, the rooms were clean too. Location is great right next to the train station, the only issue there is that you hear the trains really loudly. Atmosphere felt more like a hotel than a place to meet new people and hang out. Overall a great place to stay though!

    A really sweet hostel with an amazing location and all necessities you need! Sadly, the atmosphere the week-end I stayed there left more to be wished for, as the hostel guests seemed to be mostly adult people with families and not really the ordinary backpacking group, but that might just be the occasional bad luck on my side. Would recommend for a stay however!

    Very complicated to have the keys. The employees are not present during opebing time and you must figure out how to get to your room. Luckily Im European and I could call the emergency number, but would be very difficult for someone outside of Europe to figure it out. Overall clean rooms, relatively charming house.

    Good location, good facilities but I've got a single bedroom and it smelled SO BAD! Also, the pillow had hair from somebody else on it when I arrived, clearly the bed linen has not been washed/changed. SO DISGUSTING!!! I didn't left because you have to pay for your entire stay on the arrival and I couldn't afford losing all those euros.
