Booking the night before I was a little confused when I found myself standing outside a spa in the pouring rain, but lugging my backpack (that was also a suitcase) up the steep stairs the reception was very welcoming. The cute welcome room had sofas and games and the walls were covered in art from different visitors. They took us... More

They have a common sitting area, well equipped kitchen, clean bathroom and nice beds and funkiest art on their walls. All my stuff lied open in the room. I never found the need for private lockers here.They do have storage box in the rooms. Best part is the location of this hostel. It’s centrally located in the old town area.... More

What I loved about this hostel was its fantastic location. The staff were all nice and helpful as well. But the hostel itself is old and dirty, even though bathrooms were generally ok, which is important I think. I stayed there for one night only so it wasn't a problem for me, but those who like cleanliness shouldn't really go... More

The hostel is good, well located, the staff is very helpful, but they have serious problems with water heating (sometimes it heats, sometimes it doesn't), so if you really don't like the idea of maybe taking cold shower you shouldn't go there... All the rest is fine

The directions to this hostel that are given on the website are quite possibly some of the best directions I have ever received to anywhere. Quite literally, think along the lines of: "walk across the tram tracks, then take ten steps to the left, turn before you see the castle..." Despite the childlike sense around these, I found them very... More

On a month's inter-rail this was by far the most genuine 'backpackers hostel' of all. The atmosphere was friendly and the murals in the reception are all pretty gnarly. Everything was there that we needed. The location is unbeatable - again the best of our trip - on the main square. What a place.

i booked this hostel in advance, not knowing what to expect. Boy was i surprised! the staff guys are hilarious, always keen for a beer or two and very helpful. i stayed in a 4 bed dorm, was alright, nothing too fancy. kitchen is also nice and the living room is great to hang out. all the travellers come together...

Stayed here earlier this month and it's easily one of the best budget hostels I have stayed at this year. It's very cheap and very basic but the staff are amazing and so helpful it more than makes up for it! They literally cannot do enough for you. The location is superb as everything in the old town is walking... More
