Initially, I was a little skeptical because I've read the reviews of this place before coming, but it turns out my stay wasn't really that unpleasant as some have reported. Firstly, the staff there were very friendly in providing information where necessary and the cat who lives there was an absolute love little creature to play with. The hostel has... More

I stayed, luckily, only for 2 nights in this hostel. The only good thing about it is the location, which is not perfect either as it is so close to bars and night clubs that it makes it hard to sleep. Highlights of my bad experience staying there include having no stairs to climb up to the top bed, a... More

Besides the usual travel advice and nice service, one of the employees help me out solving an issue I encountered in recovering my ID I had to leave in Amsterdam. He shipped it to my US address without asking for anything in return. Details that make a difference in your overall travel experience :D

I stayed in a 6 person room for three nights and the shared bathroom was not cleaned once - there was men's hair all over the floor and the toilet was dirty. The staff made me wait for 20 min to check in, the entire time while they just sat and chatted with eachother. The location of the hostel was... More

We wanted to have our accommodation close to center. It is near the Centrum. It is very close to everywhere. The breakfast very bad. We received just peanut butter with jam and coffee or tea to drink. But this was one thing we do not like. The room was very clean.

Don't stay here ever. The hostel smells in general, the sheets and bed covers don't seem like they have been washed in 3 years. You have to pay extra for everything- for a key to the room, towels, to leave bags during the day after checking out. The workers are creepy and rude. It is a good location, just stay... More

The location was awesome if you want to be central to night parties and cute restaurants in one of the main squares. The staff were so sketchy and I did not feel safe there at all. There's nowhere to put your stuff and the building is really old and not well kept.

Avoid at all costs, the worst place I've ever stayed. Stayed there recently on a stag do. Before we arrived we paid 12% deposit..which I phoned to confirm..however upon arrival they stated it was not a deposit, but a commission, then charged us the 12% again!! Also when I initially booked the room for 10 lads 3 months before the... More

What a dump!! Ripped off on arrival by a pair of con men. The place stinks and makes you want to itch (probably the mangy cat that was occupying our cell during the night) toilet broke so one of the desk numpties used a pillow case to mop up. Cannot stress how bad this place is, simply not worth paying... More
