“One to watch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Okay so this place is on the 5th floor above McDonalds and is very much a work still in progress - there is no kitchen, just a kettle in reception. But the staff are super friendly and the hostel is very clean, bright and airy, with very comfy beds! AND in the morning we were presented with a 'breakfast package' each! An individual bag containing an apple, banana and pack of belvita biscuits. I've never had that in a hostel anywhere and think it's a great idea!
This place still needs some finishing in terms of fittings but it's easy to see that it will be a great hostel. Considering the fact that we paid about €7 each for a double room, it was excellent value. Good luck and keep up the good work! :)

We booked this place, through bookingsite, and upon arrival, it was a constructionsite! Doors, windows, buckets of painting everywhere! Maybe you should finish building proces, before renting out beds? Nosy receptionist guy has no clue of reservation. We asked for the advised parking, but the guy says, we can go park on the street. A main street, with absolutely no chance of finding a spot! Or go to the parking garage, he said. what kind of service is that? The guy starts arguing with me, raising his voice - very uncomfortable. We left without staying here, and stayed at one of the other hostels in the same building.
You dont deserve to ever have any guest, with that crappy attitude. Stay away!
