Hostel is more like a hotel! Probably the only thing that makes it a hostel is that your room isn't cleaned every day which isn't really a bad thing! Room was a good size and we got our own bathroom with a fabulous shower! Also get a free breakfast which is brilliant! Free Wifi all over the hostel! Only bad... More

I had never stayed at a hostel before, but I was not so worried since I had a private room with my own bathroom.. I was delightfully surprised at the quality of this place, with its efficient staff which helped me from the first phone call making the reservation, to the last day of check out. Emilia and Pawel, at... More

Newly redecorated room, immaculately clean within 5 minutes easy walk of the central square. Free WiFi. Fridge, tea facilities and TV in the room. Ensuite bathroom/shower also spotless. Hostel lacks soul and has limited communal facilities, but provided a great, comfortable room. Only minor point: no curtains or blinds on the skylights meant that sunrise might disturb a light sleeper.... More

This place has recent remodels and it shows well. Rooms are well appointed. You can not beat the location. Mere blocks from the town center. Staff are very hospitable. Breakfast is served in nice dining area. Love the stairs! You won't be disappointed by choosing blue hostel.

Only for a night, it was a short walk from the train station, close to the old town and castle. The showers could do with better lighting and toilets with being cleaned more often though. There is a kitchen (was quite empty though) and a fridge to use. Plenty of balconies too. With a bit of luck you can catch... More

Despite the location being ok and having no issues with the staff, I wouldn't stay here again. The bathroom and room we stayed in could do with a PROPER clean. You are not kidding anyone by just sticking a bunch of air fresheners in there. It still smelled bad and I don't think the sheets were fresh.

I think that fact tells everything... There was a man in the room (our fault: we did not lock the door of the room, because we were a whole group and locked the entire floor door to the stairs and lift) while the girls slept and took all the money until one of the girls woke up. The receptionist and... More

Pros: Really good location, good WiFi and breakfast a bit better than "hostel standard", nice and polite staff. Cons: Not wow clean, Cold rooms (heating wasn't working or was off), didn't have hot water on day 2, reception is not manned 24h. Overall a nice budget, simple hostel. Good because of the location and if you are not too concerned... More
