“Great for a few nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

We stayed in a private twin room in this hostel and it was more than sufficient. The room was comfortable and a good size. There was a common room upstairs with a kitchen, a communal computer and a couple of sofas and desks, and they let us hang out here all day after we had checked out whilst we were waiting for our train. The showers weren't great as there isn't a lot of privacy but they were clean and there were loads of them! I wouldn't want to stay here for along time but for a couple of nights it was perfect.

The rooms were grand, did the job and the staff were nice. Would have been nice if there was a lounge area. The value was ok but the main thing was the location was perfect for us. Would recommend it.

I was there in semptember, last year. The staff and lacation is good, price is little too expensive (very uncomfortable mattres circa 15(SIC!) euro-in room for 4 person) yes i'm agree with becmeadz, it's big minus- btw. message to boss of hostel ava: try to sleep on this!
The best point is location, in the center of city.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This was a budget option but was not the cheapest available yet it was still lacking in crucial areas. The mattresses were very cheap and uncomfortable, the floors were dirty, the showers were entirely communal and not very well partitioned and there were only either 1 or 2 toilets per floor between a number of doors/dorms. My real problem though was the fact that they charged people to hire towels! on the plus side the location is amazing and the building is beautiful
