    My second stay at this hostel. I was so impressed with my first stay in May I booked in again. The rooms and bathrooms are really clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. I used the washing machine and driers both times that worked well.

    The hostel is really clean. It's conveniently located next to Donlands station to get to anywhere else in the city. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast has a really good variety of food. The rooms and bathrooms were really clean and always smelt nice.

    Great Hostel, great atmosphere with Café and bar underneath. But sometimes slow internet, no reading lamps for each bed, no tiny boards for glasses etc. at each bed.

    The hostel is located literally 30 seconds from a metro station so even though it isn't downtown, everything in the city is accessible. The staff are amicable and helpful, the atmosphere is nice, and you have all the facilities you want. One of the hardest things for hostels to get right is cleanliness, especially in showers, but here they absolutely nailed it--everything was clean and great. I'd definitely come back!

    Very enjoyable stay. Excellent location next to the subway to downtown, but right in Greektown which has a lot of nice restaurants. I liked the decor of the bar and coffee shop. Both seemed like cool chill places. Noise was not an issue. Room was small and a bit cramped but not a major issue. Felt place was clean, nice facilities and cool layout. Also liked the back deck where you could sit out. I could definitely stay here again.

    The rooms were decent and the staff service was excellent. Overall a very nice atmosphere. The only thing I found a little annoying was trying to sleep with a bar/cafe right below me. The constant whaaa whaaa whaaa of the bass was a bit irritating.

    Lovely hostel with a spacious patio, kitchen and games room. Conveniently had a bar and cafe on sight serving reasonably priced drinks with a great atmosphere. The only downsides I found were that most of the people staying there were a lot older so if you’re traveling like me and want to meet other young people it might not be the best place but it’s luck as to who else will be staying with you. It is also takes two subway rides to get to the center of the city. But overall a great place!

    Good location and staff. Only remarks would be that 6 people in a 15 m2 room with a skylight and no windows makes the sleeping experience slightly claustrophobic.

    Staff was nice and location & facilities were ok. However, there was no atmosphere in the weekend I was there. While you can't always garantee a good atmosphere, there were two things that made it hard to have one: - the only place to drink alcohol is in the downstairs bar that is open to anyone. - the staff could organize activities such as bar crawls etc to foster a good atmosphere. Overall ironic for a place that advertizes itself like the funnest hostel in town.
