    Staff were very helpful and answered our questions, aircon was very good and location was excellent for walking to all the historical sites as well as shops and restaurants. We had a double room with en-suite; the shower was great and there was plenty of space for all our bags etc in the room. Only complaint is the wifi being very slow/non-existent but I’m sure it works well in other rooms/common areas and it wasn’t the main reason we booked here either. Overall definitely recommend :)

    The location is great! Shops and restaurants immediately out the front door and within walking distance of numerous sites and attractions. The elderly man barely spoke any English but we got by with what we needed. The woman speaks a little more English but not much more. She was incredibly friendly and kind though! The facilities were good value. Only complaint was no control of the AC. It’s either on or off and after a few hours of being on it gets cold. Really cold. And I’m a Wookiee.. ha

    Pros Good shower Good location Clean bed linen Cons Everything not in the pro list. Reception was rude. Tried to charge me the city tax despite saying it was included. No heating despite it being cold. Have to leave the key every time you go out. I wouldn't recommend this hostel and I wouldn't stay here again. Was shouted at because they didn't speak English when I asked for a towel.

    One of the employees burst into our room, fully knowing we were in there, and screamed at us to get out because we hadn't paid for the night. Context: We had been there since Monday and this happened Thursday and we HAD paid. When we arrived Monday, the AC in our room wasn't working. No problem - they switched our rooms. They forgot to update the chart to the room we were moved to. Fine. But it was so inappropriate how this man aggressively bursts into our room. I'm livid

    We’re on a backpacking trip & used to making due but; No kitchen or breakfast. 1 kettle and a few mugs in the dirty basement. Description of the hostel is ‘proudly family owned’, and we had to pay cash when we arrived - yet after one night we wanted to refund the rest because it’s a bad place to stay and they looked at us like it was the website who had that money now. Only one staff speaks English. No atmosphere, tiny bed, ugly building, staff sleeps & smokes on top floor. Do not stay here!
