The hostel is about a 15 minute walk from the train station, right through the center of town, which is a bit inconvenient, and is right next to the train tracks heading south from town, so if you get a room on the building's south side (which I have all three times I've stayed here), it can be noisy when...

We stayed here for two nights with two children. We got a family room, which consisted of a bunk bed as you came in with a sink. A curtain separated that part from a second part of the room with a double bed, wardrobe and another sink. Bathrooms & showers are shared on the floor (a bit inconvenient in the... More

The rooms are clean but the beds are not so comfortable. The floor is old and makes it impossible to move quietly. There are not enough small lamps in the rooms so you always have to switch on the main lamp in a room. Leaving early in the morning = waking up others. And there is a pretty loud rooster... More

The little elevator is pretty cool and fits only 4 people. Breakfast was tasty and they had many choices! Their wifi in the lobby worked well! I found this hostel to be a little expensive for a dorm bed. There are 4 sinks and 6 cubbies in the rooms which makes things noisy as people are doing more than sleeping... More

The youth hostel is near the castle in a very good location. We stayed for a night. It was a basic twin bed but the rooms were very small.We were surprised to find a table fan and a small television in the room. The washrooms were clean and had a bath tub too. Breakfast was a decent spread. Its definitely... More
