Private room and dorms are raw, but fine, beside the BED BUGS EVERYWHERE. Service is fine, lady wakes you up pretty straight forward wen it is time to clean the rooms. Nothing is very sound proof in the hostel. The worst still being the bugs.

Stayed here for two nights in mixed dorm room. Overall the facilities were good, however one main issue I had was that there was no fridge/common room area. The Sax pub at the front is a great place to chill out, meet other travellers and mingle with some of the locals. The lady (forgot her name 😔) who operates the... More

My first ever stay in a hostel, and I would definitely stay again! I was pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the beds, and the quality of the hostel overall. the staff were brilliant, and it was great having the bar just downstairs! The shared room didn't smell wonderful, but after a spritz of air freshener it was not a... More

It's 5am. I am leaving in 2 hours. I cannot sleep. Every clock tick, I had to scratch myself. It's the worst bed bug encounter I've had. I manage to kill one bed bug in the first night, made the staff aware of the situation. I didn't want to write a bad review knowing the negative impact it might bring... More

Quality hostel. Stayed in a private room which had x2 bunk beds. Nice facilities, showers great and it's brilliant how travellers leave their old toiletries behind like shower gel and toothpaste etc. I actually never used any of my own which was great! The lady on reception was great, very helpful and friendly. The guy who worked in the bar... More

On our arrival, we were welcomed by a really pleasant lady - it was around 22:30 (later than we expected due to our train running behind schedule). The lady gave us recommendations of where to go to eat and best places to see and visit - she was so helpful! The hostel can also arrange for a gentleman called Matty... More

Been here twice and had a good time. Kind people and clean rooms/showers. There will be a third time :) And also close to the center. And good beer in the bar next door. Even Belgian specials. And good restaurant a few houses to the left of the hostel.

Though it was areally small room it's still good for money. Hostel is cheap and situated close to the old centrum. The room had a working air conditioner. WI-FI worked mostly downstairs,... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a private double room and had a fab time. The hostel is clean and the beds very comfy. It is a nice stroll down the river into the centre. The pub downstairs is also very nice and we enjoyed the local beers and wine. It was slightly loud to go to sleep but it... More

I stayed at this hostel with my boyfriend. The host was sincere and provided us with a very serene experience. Usually they would have live jazz music playing, but we came at the wrong time. There is a bar attached to the hostel which made it very convenient. Good people. We very much enjoyed our experience here, highly recommended.
