It was hard to find in that there was not a sign. I had to ask someone for help in locating it. Once there, the rest of the stay ran fairly smooth. Room was a bit crowded the first night as even though there were 8 beds, there were 12 people sharing the room.

I was in a 8 bed female dorm. Half the beds where doubles which you don't see often! Location was good, close to train station and tram right outside to get to the centre. Not much of a social atmosphere but that could have just been my timing.
