    I spent a weekend in this hostel and it was amazing. The hostel is totally clean, there is breakfast included which is better than in other more expensive hostels that I have been. The staff is always ready to help and the facilities are really good too.

    I'm impressed at how details the hostel gave me just right after the booking of what kind of transportations to get there and how to save the cost. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They gave me a lot of privacy in the busy area. The common areas such as kitchen and bathroom are well-maintained with clear rules. The public fridges and cooking equipments are clean and clearly labled. Other guests are moderate, a few play loud music but generally I can sleep well.

    Found the location and the size of the hostel comfortable and convenient, there's nothing worse than having to walk ages to find your hostel, and then climb a mountain of stairs to lug your stuff, there's only 2 floors of dorms and the hallways are nice and wide. Facilities are all good, communal rooms are open and the other backpackers are all really nice and friendly, would definitely recommend!

    Very Good

    Good if you're looking for somewhere cheap and close to the city, and if you don't mind sharing your room with an endless supply of small roaches. Staff are nice, it's relatively clean, and facilities are okay.

    A nice place for a short stay The staff is welcoming and nice Some people are really smelly which makes it unpleasant to walk in the corridors A little bit far away from the city centre but offers a nice walk to the city through parks

    Good location, close to the metro station. The city centre can be reached in 10 min. Kind staff plus free pancake on Sunday, free BBQ on Friday and free pizza once a week. The kitchen is tiny, crowded somtimes. The fridges are already full, it takes some time to find free place for your stuff. It's not very safe, my pack disappeared after a deep cleaning. The bathrooms can be freezing cold during winter. I saw some bugs in the bathroom, kitchen and dining area.
