    I‘m glad we only stayed here for two nights. Our room was right next to the kitchen. It was very noisy. You hear people talk in the kitchen, the noises from the street, the door of the room. The hostel has only two bathrooms, one of the two showers was broken. Toilet seat from one of the two toilets fell down. Toilet paper was missing multiple times. Sink was clocked. The hosts were nice, but one has mistaken us for the japanese girls in the room, who had problems with the payment.

    I don't usually leave bad reviews but there was alot wrong here , you didn't get a cover sheet for your bed , the second day I came in my bed was stripped and my ear plugs had been thrown out by staff , some girl came in and said she was given my bed .. I ended up keeping it but had to ask for a cover sheet again .There were people coming in and out of the room all night , talking .. There was no mugs for tea. I asked to replace my ear plugs and was told no. On the upside, the staff were nice.

    Safety was poor, our door handle was broken so at times we couldn’t even close our door. Staff was also not attentive, we actually had to find out information about how the hostel works from other guests instead. Place was not clean as well, imagine, after a guest left, they did no cleaning of the rooms/beds, nothing, in Covid times this was just appalling for me.

    I usually don't leave bad reviews, but this one really was a blow... not only did the staff forget to give me the key, a blanket and the breakfast cards until I asked for the items repeatedly; but the room door handle was broken and kept falling down. Also there were two small bathrooms for all the people staying there, and the maintenance was less than optimal: both showers essentially didn't really work and the whole place was usually flooded and the floor sticky with god knows what.

    The location is very good, 5 minutes from the train station. Nonetheless, the street is not very busy during the night and might not be very secure. The staff didn’t gave any key or explained how to entry the building and I had to wait outside, at 2 am, trying to communicate so I could enter. The man in charge was not very helpful or nice, the atmosphere was horrible. The door of the bedroom was broken, no key. I did not used the kitchen but I did not looked very cozy.

    It’s nothing similar to the pictures. Toilets are dirty. The kitchen is not even similar to the photos. Is located near the central station and around it everything is super dirty and feels unsafe. Don’t go
