    The hostel was nice and in a good location. I will say I was on the 5th floor and the elevator was broken the whole time which was a bit of a trek in 32 degree weather. Also, the room only had one tiny fan and no AC and the windows hardly opened so we were SO SO HOT. I did not sleep at all and actually brought my mattress onto the floor to be closer to the fan. We asked if they had an extra fan but they didn't. As long as the weather is not going to be too hot when you're there I'd recommend it

    Nice hostel, very clean. Only downside is that it isn't super convenient to get to the underground from the hostel; the closest station is a 10 min walk away. Minor gripe, though.

    The main problem was the boiling out of order. Although I got a good discount by this inconvenience, it was still a big and significant issue.

    Having no internet in the rooms was a major pain point (only in downstairs common areas) and little to no hot water in the mornings made my showers unpleasant, and quick. Shower and toilet areas are quit small and needed upkeep. For the money, it was decent value, but I recommend that you consider other options

    Worst hostel of my entire Europe trip. I can only think the good ratings on here must be from single rooms? For me in a dorm: 6 bunks cramped in a tiny tiny bedroom. All roommates were older men, 45-70+, who lived in the hostel and woke up for work every morning. Washroom facilities were bad. Single sink too small to wash my face. Shower always flooded the hallway and attendants had to clean the flood throughout the day. Small room stunk strongly. Rubber mattress was sweaty and noisy.
