Never again. I've actually been here before and thought it was okay - but this stay is just just absolutely unacceptable. At first I did not even have a duvet. Thankfully I arrived much sooner than aticipated so I could ask the staff to dig one up. Which he grudgingly did after I sat waiting around for 15 minutes while... More

It's really one of my least favorite hostel. NOT CLEAN, I even spotted two roaches in the room, which was just horrible! And in the female bathroom there are two showers connected to each other, so you basically have to walk by the first one to get to the second one. Location not really convenient, average breakfast. There must be... More

This is probably the best deal in town but even then the value for money is not that great. The 10 bed dormitory is sometimes at or above 20€. Good sleep however. There is generally no hot water in the sink of bathrooms and unreliable hot water in some showers [cold and hot alternate i hate this]; so you have... More

I thought to arrive later so I tell them. Fortunately I arrived earlier then I thought because my duvet and my pillow were blood stained. They change them, but if I arrived late I could not change because the reception would be closed. And perhaps worse, I would not have noticed the stains. I think if they were themselves to... More

Nothing like a very unfriendly service to ruin what could otherwise be an acceptable experience. Upon my arrival, I thought the manager (and apparently sole employee) wasn't either friendly or unfriendly, but just neutral. That was fine anyway. He gave me the bed linen and towel, the door codes, showed me to my room and so on. My room was... More

On the morning of my checkout the staff member at the desk had the Russian girl in front of me in tears. He was telling her they only accepted cash (is it 1950?) and she only had credit cards and was in a hurry to get to the airport. The nearest bank was blocks away. I had faced the same... More

We stayed there for one night in a shared room. Plugs are at the end of the rooms away from the beds however you have a locker and a bed! All you need. The showers were fine, they were outside the rooms

I've been there last month, and I have a really good experience. The hostel is clean, the atmosphere it's really good and you have a good buffet for breakfast. The hostel is situated in the city center, and 15min by walk from the Train station.

I have stayed one night in a twin private shared bathroom with a friend. The room was small but okay. There was not many people hanging out in the hostel so it was quiet. Overall, I think this is a great hostel to stay for few nights.

I felt this hostel was comfortable and homely. It was quiet during my stay and there always seemed to be a bit of space. Close to supermarket which is a big plus and it is a tidy kitchen. Suitable breakfast. Staff are friendly and helpful. Not too far from central train station either. I would stay again and recommend to... More
