    Clean and quiet hostel. It's a bit away from the center but ideal for those who prefer a more relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very professional, always polite and smiling, willing to address whatever situation arises.

    I guess it's a good place if you want just a olace to sleep. Its not a hostel. Its a hotel with shared rooms. Not the place to get the hostel community and shared experience. Personal experience. I came late because my plane got delayed. And the guy at the reception had no patience at all, and treated me like im stupid when the key he gave me didn't open the room. After a couple of ups and downs from the room and the reception. He finally checked the key and saw he gave me the wrong room number

    Not one to give bad reviews but the staff at this location were awful. Rude and unhelpful and felt as if they had absolutely no time for us. The room was good for what we paid and frequently visit hostels anyway when travelling so knew what to expect. Despite our do not disturb sign on the door, housekeeping demanded to come in making us feel anxious every morning that we would need to be out before anyone knocked on our door again. Overall a decent room but really not the best experience.

    You have to pay €3.80 for bed sheets which you will give back during check-out. A hostel's fundamental function is to give a bed with sheets, but in this a&o, you have to pay for the bed and the sheets separately. Another thing is that there are no safe boxes in the rooms, but there are some on the ground floor. I stayed on the 8th floor, and I couldn't use those safe boxes. I am not sure, but you have to pay extra money for that, as well. Remember, breathing is for free in this hostel

    It’s too far away from the city, the kitchen is too small and our food disappeared twice on a row from the fridge (our bag had the correct information needed). The bathroom of our room smelled like cigarette the whole stay, and kids or teenagers where knocking doors non stop at 3am. Which it waked us up. The living room is around the check in office, and not like it tends to appear on the pictures. Big disappointment.
