We stayed in a private double room on the 6th floor and it was so quite you wouldn't even know you were in a hostel. It was great to be able to socialize with the other guests and there are some really cool spaces like the terrace on the 2nd floor. It was so clean! Can't believe how clean for... More

My sister and I stayed here for three days and had an absolute blast. If you're looking to make new friends, go out to bars/clubs - all while feeling safe and clean - this is the place for you. It's not fancy and the rooms were somewhat crowded, but that added to the charm. The staff was A++, especially Walter... More

The hostel was fine. We spent one week there and it was good. The room was pretty small but clean and close to the bathroom. Only three bathrooms for each floor but it was alright, we never waited long to take our shower. The hostel has a system with electronic bracelets, which is just fine. You can open the door... More

Staff were great, rooms were above average and the common area was always kept clean and was a great time. One issue we had was with the noise we have stayed at several hostels and none have been as noisy as this one. On one occasion there was 6-8 people in the hallway at 5.30am screaming and carrying on.

I stayed here in October 2013 and had a great experience and met some amazing people that I still keep in touch with. The hostel had a very fun inside bar and community center that helped encourage the community feel of the hostel. The hostel is small enough that you began to know everyone if you stayed for a few...

I ended up staying for a full week at this hostel; the staff were very friendly and helpful, the place felt safe and welcoming, and the bar/lounge area was excellent for meeting and chatting to people. The bedrooms and bathrooms were adequate - they didn't need to be more than that. The breakfast was not brilliant, but was included and... More

It's not for families and it's not a luxury place... but I traveled there with some friends, we stayed in a 8 mixed bedroom and the experience was really good. It's a good value for money (17 EUR/night) and the location is excellent. For young travelers, it's very easy to meet new people and the hostel is really close to... More

Me and my friend took 4 nights in this hostel and there were no noise from the streets or other guests. We had the en-suite room for two and the room was clean. Breakfast was simple, but good considering the budget price range. The coffee was thankfully not instant coffee and there were some options there. Staff was friendly and... More

Comfort likewise not the best. The bathroom is not that clean, the matress is a bit hard. Gave me a bit of backache... More
