The dorm spaces were great, it was so good to have your own space and not be crowded into a bunk bed for once! The rooftop was really great too and the free breakfasts were tasty and filling. There were some people (and volunteers at the hostel) who were a bit disrespectful at night, for example they would be shouting at 3am outside dorm rooms, which was not a good vibe. But other than that it was a nice place to be.

Super Atmosphäre Angenehmes Hostel, guter Common Space mit Rooftopbar. Alle sind super super sozial und freundlich. Jeden abend ist auf dem Dach etwas los aber trotzdem ist Schlafen gut möglich, da die Ruhestunden immer eingehalten werden. Tagsüber findet sich immer eine Gruppe mit der man sich Taxi teilen oder zusammen etwas besichtigen kann. Perfekte Lage nahe des Zentrums. Zusätzlich gibt es alle paar Tage im Hostel mögliche Aktivitäten, wie kleine Kochkurse oder kostenlose Salsa-Stunde.
