Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms (1/2/3 or 4 beds) are OK, so is breakfast with wide selection, vending machines in the lobby, and a bar. You have to strip your bed in the morning, the towels are not provided (but can be rented for a fee in the lobby), and you can pay extra for a nice dinner (the...

The hostel was really nice, our room was big with enough equipment. There were 2 toilets and 2 showers for 8 people. The best thing was breakfast, included in the price. There was a buffet with many possibilities and enough food. The only disadvantage is quite a long distance from town center. You have to go uphill by the way...

+ Although it is full of young people, it is quiet at night. The room was clean and big. Price was ok. Breakfast is really nice. There is a place to leave the bikes at night. - There is only WiFi in the lobby. If you want to get there by bike, you will "suffer" the steep street that takes...

Okay but would review before staying there again. Not th,e best experience of accomodation I was disappointed that the hostel was still open and they had not identified that there were renovations occurring at the time of stay. The common room and the gym and sitting rooms were out of bounds due to the renos

High quality hi-yha hostel, with the price with it, a little high for me. Excellent breakfast included though. Location is in the city no doubt but on the top of a hill ( busses close) , so using my bike it was a lot of energy spent each day. Better to book because it seems often full with groups in...

I'm surprised with the price of this hostel, shared rooms are almost as expensive as privates on a cheap hotel. We stayed here because we arrived late to the city and tourist info was closed, so we went to the hostel because those places are supposed to be cheap. We took a double room and it was 62€! We book...

So this is a youth hostel so it's kind of obvious to point out at it will be full of kids running around revelling in the fact that they are away from home and determined to make as much noise as possible! Keep this in mind when you book! I was booked in here through my company working in Linz...

This facility is more like a university dorm than a "hostel".. The front desk is friendly and professional. The room and bath were spotless and very comfortable. It is high on a hill so it was a little difficult to get there (on bicycles.) They do have a locked shed for bikes.There's a bus that you can take (10 min)...

We had a good time! The place is very big but quiet and the rooms are big and beds are comfortable and also the breakfast is good. The only remark is that is not in the city center so you have to walk a little bit and in late nights is dark, but is a very nice walk!
