    It was clean, our roommates were quiet. We never had to wait for bathrooms. Pretty central, easy to get to. Plus we got a coupon for 1€ off our waffles.

    Only stayed for one night but I loved this hostel. Really pleasant beer bar on the main level, and a decent free breakfast in the morning. Lots of space to hang out and meet people. Room was quiet and had a nice view.

    I stayed here for two different stints. One first room was fine, and the second room was a bit cramped for the space. Both had okay in-room lockers. Locations of things can be a bit confusing. The common areas and bar made a potentially cool atmosphere with music of a surprisingly high fidelity. Free luggage storage came in handy when I arrived early, just bring your own padlock. The kitchen was exceptionally under-equipped, so don't bank on cooking. Would recommend, though not the best.

    Definitley a classic hostel vibe. The bar is very nice and there's very social atmosphere. Bathrooms are not en suite, and could be cleaner. Overall I would stay there again

    I wish I would’ve been able to check before 4 pm. For almos €50 I think is expensive for two beds but at least should be compensated with your check in time!

    Breakfast was good. Staff was ok. You can go to old town by walk in 20-25 minutes. Bus station is close to hostel. But there is no towel and soap. You should keep these available.

    Very simple hostel. My room was located across the street from the.main building. The pillows were only stuffed pillow cases, not real pillows. The staff was helpful but not friendly. Free breakfast was good. Bring a small lock to secure your belongings

    I was put across the street from the main hostel. My room was top floor a lot of stairs which I was ok with. Small rooms and you’re given two sheets to make your own bed. Showers for me was the grossest I’ve had in my 4 weeks of hostel staying. There were flies all in the shower and the water stops in about 4 seconds and you have to keep pressing it and it didn’t get hot. Kitchen in main building with bar. Wifi didn’t work kept un connecting which was a pain.

    Honestly, some random was in my bed. Once he got out to he empty one, fine. But cr**py as f**k in the morning. Not very clean facilities. Big complex, I guess you get what you pay for. Crap!
