Very Good
Nov 24, 2023
The bed’s really comfortable and big, the linen is clean and the blanket is warm. The shower is warm, and at the sinks in the toilet is enough place to put down your toiletries. What I think could be improved are the following points: - installing a shelve in every shower - replace shower curtains - place curtains for every bunk bed - keep the doors of the kitchen closed against noise for the rooms that are across the kitchen. But the rest was good: the vibe, the people…:)

This is a superb hostel! The facilities and spaces are well kept, the kitchen is properly equipped, the beds are comfortable, but most importantly, the atmosphere is the best I have experienced at a hostel. I made several friends during my short stay there. The common spaces feel inviting and encourage interaction with others. My only critique is that prices feel a bit high but I think that is just about every hostel these days. Otherwise, I would highly recommend Urbanz to anyone.
