The location of the hostel is perfect and close to the center, still very quite neighborhood. The room (8 bed dorm) was huge, high ceiling, very bright; enough space to place your belongings, "lockers" for personal stuff. Mattress was good. Heating was working, but it was not enough to heat the whole room, I had to sleep in two shirts...

This hostel is not one I will go back to. It had everything I needed but I was not a fan. The location is kind of in a creepy area. I felt unsafe walking back in the dark. The bathrooms were not great. The wifi was only usable in the lobby downstairs. I did not spend much time in this...

I would implore you to avoid this hOstel. It may be one of the cheapest but it is not worth a penny of the money they do charge SIMPLY AWFUL, worse place I've ever stayed. To summarise; -Horrible and rude welcome from an extremely unpleasant, passive aggressive and defensive man. From this point we didn't want to stay but of...

I always like to be as positive as possible but this was definitely one of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in. Only reason I'm giving it two stars instead of one is because the staff was extremely friendly, it's just the hostel itself that was inadequate. Stayed in the 16 bed dorm with ensuite bathroom... which was disgusting. The...

I stayed there with my boyfriend for only one night, but it was more than enough. We booked somewhere in November 2014 for the same period and just now I realised I never wrote anything about this place, and seeing from the recent reviews nothing has changed, I must give my contribution: AVOID THIS HOSTEL. In that period I was...

After reading other reviews, I was very surprised. Booked to stay one night after a concert in a private room with an ensuite shower. The place was clean, staff were helpful and in a great place for quick access to city centre.

After reading reviews on here, i feared the worst. What a nice surprise. We had a private room and it was clean, the private bathroom was also very clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I would most definitely stay here again.

A big group of friends and I stayed over the weekend, and after reading reviews, I was a little apprehensive to say the least! Well we rocked up, the receptionist was very smiley and friendly, the room was fine, all the beds were ok, and the noise from trains were really not too bad, easily solved with some cheap earplugs....

Please, PLEASE do not stay in this hostel! This is hell on earth. The bathroom is way worse than the inside of a sick horse. And i have even seen the inside of a sick horse. Parts of the walls were collapsing on my naked body. I was naked because my clothes were too polluted to wear. The only good...
