    Rooms were very clean and big. Beds were comfortable. It is not in the middle of the city but it's in a nice neighborhood.

    It is far away from the city centre, but the facilities are good. There was a bathtub in our bathroom which I have not seen in a hostel before. The guy checking us in was a bit slow but otherwise we did not need the staff so it is difficult to evaluate

    I haven't read the reviews left by other guests before booking. When I did I was a bit scared because they were not good at all. In the end it was not that bad. Part of the staff is not very communicative and that was a bit confusing when checking in. Fortunately the girl in the mornings was lovely and very helpful. There are usb entrances and light in every bed, not all were working though. It was the first time I have to pay for bed linen. Shower worked okay but toilet mantaince was poor.

    The location is quite far. It took us 50min to get anywhere. In the hostel were staying families with children and in general quite strange groups of people. The bedrooms weren’t fully equipped (there was no closet), we were able to fully open windows which led us to sweat every night and barely have air. Most of the staff didn’t speak english and they rolled their eyes when we asked for more towels. The breakfast and vending machines were also quite expensive.

    Here is the low down, not sure if this is still an issue but I stayed here back in September. The check in line was took over two hours to get checked in. Some people were told there was no bed or room. Little if any English is spoken so know either German or Russian. Staff is rude, and point blank if your American. They will ask to hold your passport in exchange for you to get to use the kitchen which is locked and they give you a key. Its some left over cold war BS they are doing.

    This place blows, and will make you sad. Cold, sterile, nothing atmosphere you would expect from a big corporate hostel. Staff seem to hate their jobs and make it pretty clear. Absolutely nothing going on here, and in a crummy location. Being here is honestly depressing. Also, they just renovated the top floor and somehow forgot to put hooks in the bathroom shower area? Wtf? It's so cheap how do you skimp on that?
