Stayed here with my friend during our interrail trip in 2013, and I cannot find a single bad thing to say about it. Super cozy atmosphere, it is like living with a bunch of awesome people! I almost didn't feel like leaving. Recommended it to three groups of friends who went interrailing this summer and they all loved it! Good... More

Fanatically private to the point of being impossible to find. But don't give up! The staff are so friendly. The rooms are adequate and the location is great. Three flights of stairs can be a killer with luggage though. Stayed in the 4 bed room. Comfy and clean. But kitchen right next to you so if you like sleeping in...well... More

Firstly if like us you have huge backpacks instead of following the signs and nearly passing out up 3 flights of stairs, carry on pass the sign and to your right hand side you will find a lift which you take to the third floor. It's a tight squeeze but does work and carried our weight plus backpacks on the... More

A very friendly hostel, the staff would always go above and beyond to be helpful and to give advice and directions when they could. It's In a very easy to find location via metro and a very close walk to the river (which is a life saver when you get yourself a bit lost!). The hostel was close to a... More

Friendly and helpful staff. It takes a while to find it because the sign for the hostel is hidden and the actual hostel is on the third floor. The hostel is very close to the big Market Hall, some baths, and in walking distance to most sights. Parallell to the street where the hostel lays, there is a big restaurant-street... More

I spent a few nights at HH while I was doing a 'Eurotrip'. The place is really cozy and I liked its style very much. It actually looks like a home, not like a hostel! HH is in the downtown, near to the clubbing district, but not in the middle of the mass, so everything is peaceful and silent during... More

We spent 4 days (3 nights) in this hostel. The reception doesn't work 24/7 so we had to write our time of arrival on our reservation. The receptionist was in front of the building right on time, therefore we didn't have to look for a hostel too long (no big signs or anything on building itself). The interior of the... More

I've spent 3 days in this hostel with my boyfriend in the 10 bedded dorm. We got a nice semi-private solution for a very cheap price! On the mezzanine of the room, there is 2 double beds for couples who want to have some privacy which is unbelivable in a 10 bedded dorm. The hostel has a nice and cosy... More

We (a group of 4) stayed here whilst travelling around Europe in the summer. Nice interior, friendly staff, and good facilities. Good location- it's not too far from a street full of restaurants, and a metro it situated at the bottom of the street, which is pretty handy. I would definitely stay here again.
