Stayed with 2 friend in a 6 bed dorm. The room itself was excellent, super clean and very nicely decorated for a Hostel. We could only access the floor we were on (with the room key) either using the elevator or stairs so we felt quite safe. The hostel is in a short distance from 2 different metro stations which came in quite handy. Staff were kind and helpful.
Breakfast is obviously not a feast but we were quite impressed considering it's a Hostel, we definitely expected less.. it's served in a sort of cafeteria which turns into a very cool bar/restaurant at night. We ate there one evening with the discount vouchers (we got given some when checking in), definitely good value for money.
The only downside is the bathroom! It is shared, which is not a problem for me, except there was only 1 on our floor (each floor has at least 10 dorms, 1 is not enough!!) As if that wasn't bad enough, it had 3 showers (in stalls) and only 2 drains. On our second day the drains got completely clogged from the amount of water running through and the bathroom kind of flooded, so it was very messy and unpleasant.
Anyways, the bad experience with the bathroom was overshadowed by the awesomeness of the rest of it.. I'd definitely stay there again.
