    Really nice staff! Great location not too far from lidl. Like everyone said there aren't enough bathrooms and you always have to wait and kitchen also has room for one person to cook at a time. Also when I was there the wifi only worked if you stand right next to the router

    The Swallow Hostel is in a great location, and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms are simple but very tidy. The neighbourhood is relatively quiet, so if you’re looking for a partying location this isn’t it. However, if you want a hostel that’s quiet and close to the metro and ameities, you should definitely check it out. Be warned that the wifi isn’t reliable, and there are additional costs for towels and laundry. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay!

    I enjoyed my stay! I was looking for a cost effective place that was comfortable, secure and quiet and close to the metro and I found it. I'd stay there again, but maybe not on a really hot night (no Air Conditioning). The staff were awesome and there are lots of options for food, coffee, and groceries nearby.

    Very Good

    You get what you pay for. This hostel seems new. It has a lot of potential, but it's missing a few key things. - There are only two bathrooms on the floor. - The 6-bed room had only three power outlets. - There was no air conditioning, so the room was hot. However, the bathrooms were very clean. There was a nice kitchen, and the staff was friendly. There weren't a lot of people, so the lack of bathrooms wasn't a problem. I only stayed one night.

    Friendly staff and clean rooms. Internet was really bad and you're asked to leave even the common areas after checking out. They barely let you go into the bathroom after that, including after paying to store your luggage there.

    "late checkin fee MAY apply" --> I only arrived 30mins later and informed/ asked the staff about it beforehand. Result:10E for 30mins. I wanted to cancel the booking, so they reduced the fee to 5E which I then accepted. Unfortunately, I was lectured about this fee when I arrived and the guy at the reception treated me like bad. He only directed me to the room after payment. Also, there are two mixed bathrooms/toilets on the whole floor. Rooms are very poorly equipped (bed, ceiling light, power)

    At first, everything seemed in order and the place is nice and well kept. But then: The bathroom floor was wet almost always and it was very slippery and potentially dangerous The beds in our private room were very uncomfortable because you could feel the springs (who uses beds with springs nowadays anyway?!) The door that separated our private room from the next room was not blocking any noise coming from that room so it was as if I was not in a private room 25minutes waiting to leave the keys

    Room was not as expected, was smaller and less clean. Not enough bathrooms on each floor for the volume of guests and bathrooms were very unpleasant to use. Hostel in general was also not as presented in its photos. Would not stay here again.

    We went there with our little dog as the advert said petfriendly loke three times. We booked a shared room and they told us that we should book a double room, we understood that and we agree. The receptionist was all time speaking with her manager by phone and he was yelling at her, we even start with the payment and he called again and told her to give me the phone and told me that we couldn't stay with a dog, he insulted me and called me stupid and idiot and we finally leave the hostel.

    The staff at the hostel were extremely unhelpful and rude. They did not speak sufficient english and added extra fees on that weren't mentioned in the ad listing. The doors into the hostel were often left unlocked and the doors to the dorms did not lock. The dorms had lockers however you weren't able to lock these (even if you had your own lock). This was far more of a boarding house than a hostel. On my first two nights, I stayed with a family of 5 in my dorm. There was a kid, parents+grandpare
