some of the personnel at the reception was rude, the wi-fi does not work most of the time, there are stupid rules about the time that reception is closed, if you want a to go aout and have a key you have to leave much money as deposit. I do not recommend this place.

The staff in this place were without doubt the least hospitable, rudest, most charmless hosts I've ever encountered. It made me wonder what an earth had possessed them to go into the hosteling business. I should clarify that this was really just one person, who always seemed to be working in reception. Perhaps the rest of the team are okay,...

After being scolded rudely by the receptionist for patiently waiting for 20 minutes to check in, we were informed that if we decided to leave after 1 night we would not be refunded for the second we had paid for in advance. Presumably people often want to leave, because the hostel SHUTS between 10am and 2pm, meaning you CAN'T EVEN...

Poor treatment of staff. Very Expensive. 10 a.m to 1 p.m you get kicked out of hostel. You can not go out at night because they close the hostel for 1 to 7. Not clean. They do not return the deposit. Very very very bad.

I have stayed in numerous hostels and this was about average in terms of what I have seen. We got turned aroung with our map when we first exited the train station because there was ongoing construction, but once we figured out which direction we wanted it was an easy, level 5 minute walk with our luggage to get to...

Me and my boyfriend stayed there for 6 nights. I had done the reservation of a room with private shower and toilet. Instead, they gave us one with two separate beds, no bathroom or toilet whatsoever. We complained and they changed us to a berth with private shower. We were so tired we didn't complained further. Was until when we...

the rooms are quite clean, and breakfast is not bad. But the hostel closes 4 hours in the afternoon for cleanings and to deposit your luggage you have to pay a locker! some members of the staff were very unfriendly, even rude with some guys that arrived after 6pm and so had their reservation cancelled. You cannot sleep in this...

Stayed here for three nights. The accommodations were fine, but average. It's part of the HI Hostel network and I find them to be pretty basic overall. The staff were friendly and very helpful. I give them a lot of credit for the help they provided to me. There is free wifi in the common room, bar, and breakfast room....

We had two bunkbed rooms with our own showers and basins and with breakfast included it was pretty good value for money at EUR25 a night for non members. It was clean, a short 5-10min walk from the station and no age limit (we stayed with our parents 50+). Keep in mind this is a hostel so the only downside...
