    We stated in a private double room and had a great stay. Good location, really clean with a big kitchen for cooking. We would definitely recommend!

    Great experience. Staff was friendly, kitchen was large and fully equipped with anything you can possibly think of and the rooms were comfortable!

    The building key is the same key for the room and there were no lockers so I feel security could have been better. But the place is in a great location, decent sized kitchen, clean rooms and bathrooms. Beds are not the best but not the worst either. There is parking but only 5 free spots. Once it's full you'll have to pay to park on the street. It was nice and quiet while we were there.

    Good hostel in nice neighbourhood. Approx 15m walk from city centre, but I personally liked the location better because of the surrounding neighbourhood. Fine private room and enough showers/bathrooms. Only small downside is the (big) common room is in the other villa, requiring outside walk. Otherwise I had a nice stay at this place.

    Very nice staff. Very clean hostel with great kitchen and lounge. Had a double room which felt and smelled a bit damp. The floor in the bathroom did not dry after we showered. Really enjoyed our stay

    Booked a private room for two. Hard to find the wifi pass with late check-in. Some weird things about the room like hard to reach fan and light switch for ensuite bathroom. Wish doors had key cards that automatically locked instead of old-fashioned key. Liked the hot water boiler in the room. Close to a grocery store!

    Really nice place! That don’t have individual security lockers in the rooms, which I expected every place had, but that is the only downside. People are nice and the place is clean

    Rooms have very small space heaters that do not heat the rooms adequately for winter. The place is going through some renovations but the showers seem inadequate for the number of people staying in the hostel.
