Stayed two nights. It seems to me that there are many locals staying in smaller dorms so if you get the big dorm, you might be lucky to own it all by yourself. Kitchen and common area is attached, sufficient to cook and eat and hangout. Their website is simple yet updated- I paid exactly what was stated in the... More

Had a lovely time at this hostel! It was clean, cosy and all of the facilities were in very good order. Our double room was very comfortable and we slept well. Everything you could need - the kitchen is well equipped and with space to relax, and you can do your laundry here too. The staff were relaxed and helpful.... More

This is a clean, quiet, warm, and very comfortable Hostel staffed by a couple who really care about their guests. We were a party of seven, five of whom were children aged between 5 &14. The children were delighted to find a bowl of chocolates in the kitchen when we arrived, and there were also books (in English) and a... More

Highly recommend! The two staff I met here were incredibly nice and showed me around the hostel when I got here, making sure I was comfortable and orientated. The location is perfect, just a short walk from the Alt Stadt. The rooms are really clean and well layed out with power points. The kitchen rocked with an oven, stove top... More

I've been surprised by this hostel. For a very cheap price, you get a very warm and comfortable place, always clean. The kitchen is very spacious and they offer you coffee and stuff for breakfast. It's easy to reach (nearby the central station) and close to the city centre (10 minutes walk). And the host is a very nice person!

A great location near the train station and bus lines, and just a short walk downtown. Prices were extremely reasonable. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. I opted for the single room. It had plenty of space and was right next to a WC/shower room. Towels were free and plentiful. The kitchen was nice, and there's a bakery and a grocery... More

Our first time at a hostel, and a great experience. Clean, basic rooms, with easy access to restrooms, showers, and kitchen facilities. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. For less than half the cost of an average hotel room, this was truly a steal! Within walking distance of train station and Old Town,... More
