“Definitely recommend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The hostel is so nice especially for the price you pay! The only negatives about this hostel that I have experienced are:
1. Having to leave your room by 10am so cleaners can come and
2. Having to lug your luggage up two flights of stairs (there is a small lift available, very old school)
Another slight problem which is only partially the hostels fault is that my friend and I booked another nights stay and were put into separate rooms. This would have been fine if I was not a 20 year old girl being put in a room with two men.
Other than those minor problems, I would highly highly recommend Legends Hostel- it is located so closely to everything, it's clean, priced accordingly and the staff are so friendly and helpful!

The hostel was nice, but the breakfast in the morning was substandard (albeit free). There was also a lock out period between 10am and 3pm (which was fine considering we were away most days.) The annex in which we stayed was secure and safe. Situated very closely to the train station.

We stayed here for 3 nights

We had a double room which was clean, comfortable and warm as the weather was cold. The location is not far from the train station and we found this useful.

The lock out period of 10-3pm did not affect us as we were out looking around. So if you are unwell, or need rest or anything - this hotel would not be appropriate.

The room was above a restaurant which was noisy until 11-12 at night - with the windows shut. The shower would often run out of hot water after the first short shower. Towels were not available in the room - they had to be retrieved from the building next door.

Wifi did not work within the room, however there were computers available to be used in the lobby.

The hostel has a kitchen but we didn't used this.

First we checked in. After lugging our stuff upstairs they told us we would have to move everything to a building around the corner. Also we're five 20 year old girls and they put a 27 year old man in our hostel with us and didn't even tell us at check in. We were told there would be free pizza. There wasn't. No breakfast. Only coffee. Rooms are stuffy. Make you leave from 10-3 every day. Wifi is not only hard to work but it also works slow. Our showers were cold for two days. Only nice thing was that it was decently clean. We were also woken up by constructions every morning at 7am. We paid 27euro per person which is the most expensive hostel I've every stayed at and it was DEFINITELY not worth it.

I would never return to legends hostel.... Not only did we pay quite a bit more than any other hostel I've stayed at in Europe, but there was no ammenities that made it worth it. We were told there was free pizza every night... Apparently that was a seasonal deal because the only thing in the shared fridge open to anyone is a crusty empty jar of Nutella. Also, my friends and I (five 20/21 year old girls) booked a hostel room and got a surprise roommate (reception never told us) that was a 27 year old man. Great for him... not so much for us. Needless to say it was awkward. Additionally, we were not provided with towels to shower with, the wifi is spotty, and we were woken up to loud construction (which sounded like it was in the room next door), overall it was just a bad hostel experience. I would NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOSTEL.

I really liked this place. The rooms were nice and I thought the price was pretty good too. It was also very clean. There was free pizza and wine at night which was nice. The staff was kind of rude though and didn't really seem like they wanted to talk to you or help you. The location was really close to the main train station which was good too.
