          This place was renewed in 2014 and deserves a much better rating. It's now a capsule hostel where everyone in the dorm gets to stay in their own capsule/pod. Great idea and easily worth the extra price as it gives you a little private space....More

          Hello, and thank you for your great comments. We ask that guests please ignore any reviews previous to summer 2014. The whole hotel has been renovated and there is a new cafe-bar. All dorm beds are now in the form of separate capsules/cabins (or "hobbit-holes"!)....More

          Stayed 5 days. Comfortable, close to subway. Walkable to many of the things and places you will want to see. Very useful information board and excellent wifi connection. Quiet at night for sleeping. A little dingy in bathrooms but manageable.
