Location is an advantage but not only. Staffs also friendly and room is clean. They also provide breakfast (toast and jam). If you just want to stay for few nights in city center, this is your hostel.

Service: The guys working there were friendly. Value: Good value. Sleep quality: Okay. Cleanliness: A bit dusty in the rooms. Kitchen is always messy. Drying towels and washing sponges are dirty, possibly make dishes dirtier than before. Location: Good; close to the shops, train/tram stations and Anytime Fitness. Rooms: Quite big but the placement of lockers is a bit inconvenient.... More

A very nice and clean backpackers with three common rooms with flat screen TVs and a built in bar with exceptionally cheap drinks. The staff are nice and helpful for the most part. The beds are a bit stiff, but overall not too bad for a backpackers. I would reccommend staying there.
