    Great place and close to the train station. Be aware that if you don't have a sleeping bag, you'll be charged an extra 3.5 euros for bedding. It's a small annoyance, but an annoyance nonetheless.

    Great hostel, though extremely packed at times with tour groups waiting in the front (mainly children). Also the staff woke us up at 8 one morning for someone to come in and “check the outlets” which was a huge inconvenience as we received no notification and were woken from our sleep twice. Other than that great hostel, as a gentleman at the front was very nice and let us in before check in time.

    Plus: Bed in the dormitory was very comfortable. The room was quiet. Breakfast is a very good value for money, it costs 7 euro and there is a lot of choice. Free wifi works great. Minus: Electric plugs in the room were in hard to access places. Compared to other hostels it was a bit unusual and confusing: lots of families with small children, some beds in the same room had linen and towels included and some had to be paid extra, reception (check in) was very slow.

    Good hostel. I guess by being next to the main rail station is a plus, but you see some people that might seem dangerous around. Nothing to worry though. Free pasta dinner each day gives you the chance to go to the common area and meet other guests. I did struggle a bit to get a shower, as it seems we only had one for several rooms.

    Overall the hostel was nice. We had issues checking in where it took a while and resulted in the people behind us scream at us and the employees. The linens were also not changed on one of the beds and it resulted in someone taking my friends bed the second night and us having to move around. Cleaning and assigning the bed should have happened and did not.

    Nice and clean hostel with a nice shower. The kitchen is poor, but usable. The hostel is close to the train station, but quite far from the city center.

    This is one of the less satisfactory a&o hostels I have stayed at. The hostel itself is in a good location for train travelers but rather crowded. The staff was friendly but also rather dismissive. Three issues I encountered were that half the lights in our room didn’t work, towels and bed sheets cost extra (although this IS listed but still quite unnecessary), and even though I paid for an all female room for some reason two guys were put there with us. Overall though it’s fine and cheap.

    There are no lockers in the room. Is near the station but not to the main attractions expect for Belvedere Palace. The Staff was polite but overwhelmed by the amount of guest and request. There was not Hostel atmosphere, no activities per day in the hostel and the bar was lacking personal so you needed to wait 25 minutes to get one drink. Cleanliness is fine no complains but nothing exceptional. There are much better hostels at a better or similar rate. The kitchen is too small, lacks utensils.

    This was the worst “hostel” that I have ever stayed at. It’s more like a factory and has absolutely no comforting or relaxing vibe. Nothing is including except for a mattress, as you have to pay extra for nearly everything else! The common area is pathetic and the 24 streaming of sports, that they claim, is a lie. Also the location is terrible. While it may be 5 minutes from the train station, it’s a 45 minute walk from downtown. All around, just a terrible experience. DONT STAY HERE.
