The hostel is a two minute walk to all the cafe's, bars etc. You get what you pay for! The hostel was clean and we didnt have any problems. It was a bit noisy but overall, a perfect place to lay your head!

We started our weekend and in the middle of the night discovered our room had BED BUGS crawling up the walls and on our pillows and bed sheets, a horrible night... The next day we had our room changed to another one on a different floor and still found bed bugs so we decided to leave because it was disgusting.... More

Workers don't seam to be too friendly.... More

This hostel is located in a perfect part of town, near a lot of the museums, bars and restaurants. The rooms are basic and furnishings could be better but the staff are very helpful and helped me when needed.

The hostel is in a great location but that's about it. The room I'm in is very cramped and has a low ceiling which makes getting in to the top bunk a little difficult if you don't want to bash your head in. I stayed in the third floor so I had no wifi signal and had to sit in... More
