Given that it is a hostel and not a hotel we did not expect to find a luxury palace or a room super luxury but not even a 2mt x 3mt (we chose a double bedroom) and as coat rack a hanger and 2 bedside tables. The window was huge and this was positive if it was not that it... More

Nice clean hostel but very poor security. Someone came off the street and was allowed to walk through the rooms and in the process he took my laptop while i was in the kitchen getting breakfast. Nice place but be aware.

About 10-15 min walk from the railway station. Helpful and nice receptionist. Breakfast! Typical European breakfast: choice of muesli and jams, sour milk, cheese, sausages, vegetables, bread, choice of tea, coffee. All you need. And self-service of tea and coffee at any time. Not every hostel includes breakfast in the price. Bed lining also included! But, of course, everything is... More

Great location. Really friendly and helpful staff (especially when I picked up the wrong luggage from the airport, they contacted the airport for me and helped me track down the person who had mine). Nice clean rooms, good communal areas and an all-round good hostel.

The location is ideal, just on the edge of Old Town. All the reception staff were very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast included is cereal, ham, cheese etc. - a really good buffet. We had a twin room in the back of the building, which overlooks a quiet courtyard. (The dorms are in the front, I don't know what they... More

Nice hostel but not very much fun while we were there anyway....very weird collection of people! You can't really fault the facilities; three free computers, kitchen, nice communal room (in which they let us sleep while we waited for our rooms!). Showers weren't great but they got the job done. Pricing is fair from what I remember and location is... More
