I stayed here because it was cheap and near the train to the airport so good for an early morning flight. Cosy kitchen and living area. Complimentary towel which was nice because I forgot mine. It was definitely more of a party hostel but I was expecting that from the marketing on hostelworld and so won’t complain.

the place was clean and stuff, but my complaint is this: Ä° paid ten euro to have my clothes cleaned, which i thought was overpriced. Ä° ask them to wash with cold water, they asked 20, or 40 degrees. i replied 20, but sadly, hot water was used and all of my clothes were shrunk. this is extra aggravating as I'm a traveler, who doesn't have the time or money to have new shirts made. this is a small mistake that has big consequences. And there will be no accountability.
