the location was great, half way between the train station and main square. The room was cool and spacious, with a clean and large bathroom. The only disappointment was breakfast, however it was included in the already bargain nightly price, so we shouldn't complain.

Good and helpful staff, perfect and diverse breakfast included. I was surprised by the rooms, the seperate shared restroom and our own bathroom with a big comfortable shower. The rooms are very good and spacious and very close to the big square! (thumbs up!)

The hostel was very good, the staff were excellent! One of the receptionists was lovely, she was so helpful and gave us advice for best places to eat and to go clubbing which was fantastic. The staff are at the desk 24hrs so let us in after our night out which was great (although we felt a bit guilty!). It... More

I stayed in a 5 bed dorm with an ensuite. The room was large and windowless, with lockers (you need your own padlock). The bathroom was clean but we were only supplied with one roll of toilet paper. You have to leave your key at reception every time you leave, which can be inconvenient when the staff are dealing with... More

I stayed here on a recommendation and it proved right. The hostel is based in a quiet street not far from the old square and the bus and train station. The room (a double) was clean and functional for a sightseeing holiday & the showers were great with hot water at all times . The breakfast was good value for... More

Great location just a few minute walk from the main square but on a quiet street. Rooms were clean. Each room has a shower and bathroom. Staff were friendly. Breakfast is included in the price. Selection of breads, cereal, tea, coffee. Great value for money.

The city hostel is located right in the city centre, in a nice area near the city's theatre, 5mins walk from the main square. The hostel was clean, our rooms were spacious - especially for a hostel - and, very important when it's freezing 10 degrees outside, very well heated. The staff was very helpful and patient, even when trying... More
