    Very pleasant stay, quiet, clean, safe, and really great location. Not too cheap, but that's mostly as expected given its location. Didn't feel much of a social atmosphere, so probably not the best place for solo travelers, but otherwise really nice!

    Good hostel with friendly helpful staff. Great location. Good breakfast included. Main issue was we hadn't realised our room would have no windows which was Ok for one night but not for longer.

    Centrally located, walk everywhere! Room 8 was GIGANTIC, quiet room for 6 females. Each bunk has privacy curtains and two HUGE lockers underneath. Bring your own lock, and towel too or rent one for 2€. Our room had a couch, a vanity, and a coffee table. There are plenty of toilets. There's a single shower and a shower room, that had 3 separate enclosed showers in it. Breakfast is from 8-11. Oranges were only fruit, but they have hazelnut spread. Large common area, GREAT location, helpful staff.

    Centrally located hostel walking distance from all the key attractions. Staff were friendly and the hostel was kept clean. I really liked the shelves, hooks, mirror, light and power point next to the bed. The atmosphere was lacking when I stayed so it wasn’t the best place to travel solo.

    The hostel is very central, kept clean, and the staff are nice. I'm not a fan of this ultra modern hostel thing though. The staff are gone at 11.00, so if you need anything overnight, good luck to you. I much prefer places that have people there overnight. Also I thought the place was a bit dead for atmosphere, like it's a bit sterile in my opinion. They could also use more bathrooms. No real complaints about the stay though, found it very easy to get good sleep there anyway!

    Open concept would function far better if the hostel actually offered/encouraged interaction between guests. As such, the lack of atmosphere negates any potential created by the open concept. Few toilets and showers and can cause inconvenience. Facilities are average, albeit sufficient, for the price paid. The inability to stay in the common room beyond 11pm also causes significant anger/confusion amongst guests, which ultimately contributes to how lifeless the hostel can feel at times.
