We really enjoyed our stay in the hostel. The location is awesome right in the city center. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the guy from Buenos Aires and the Spanish guy!
The rooms haven an modern touch and were very very clean, no complaints! Furthermore the room was very big :-)
Some little weaknesses existed:
We booked a double room with private bathroom. Unfortunately the bathroom was not directly accessible via our room but via the (video controlled) hallway. We were the only onces with the key, but it was a little bit stressful though.
Another issue was the noise, we stayed close to the kitchen and every morning we heard the dishes rattle since the staff was preparing it. But its a hostel, thus no problem. If you look for a quiet room just make sure that are not close to the kitchen.
Anyways, I warmly recommend this hostel! Its clean, modern and has an awesome location. But, dear hipstel team, if you read this: replace your doorbell with a light signal or something like that. All guests have to use this doorbell at night, so the guests that are already in the hostel hear it and wake up (what could be hard with a hangover). And its really loud!
But all in all, thanks for the wonderful stay
