Great and cozy atmosphere, nice staff, ok breakfast, rooms and bathrooms ok. Nothing fancy but it is a hostel and it was very clean, felt safe and good value for money. Easy to get to from the station, by walking 15 minutes or by tram a few stops. Would definitely come back. Would have been nice to be able to make your own coffee (maybe a kettle in the room) and maybe some place to keep drinks cold but nothing else I could think of to improve.

Very good hostel! I had queen sized beds in my 8 bed female dorm so that was awesome. Not much of a social vibe but that wasn’t a huge deal to me, I believe there is a bar downstairs so if you seek an interaction you may find one haha. Showers were clean and kitchen was great and beds were comfy! There was even a cat that would stop by for a visit every now and then. Overall a good place to relax!
