The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The hostel was safe and secure. Everything was clean and above my expectations (and I've stayed in hostels that were filthy). The hostel is less than 5 minutes walk from the train station (I'm a slow walker).

I had a pleasant stay at this hostel. The staff were kind and helpful. I felt safe throughout my stay. The pillow, sheets, and the hostel were all clean. The location is convenient, within walking distance to the city center and very close to the train station.

Pretty good hostel, not too far from down town or the train station. THe room & facilities were clean and worked like it should. Breakfast was also pretty good. It could be even better if they created an atmosphere in the common area. Still Great value for money !
