I didn't get to stay in this hostel because when I got there they told me "Sorry the hostel is closed so we will put you in another one" First of all I don't even understand what they meant by "closed" and also why they couldn't inform me about the issue before my arrival, not on the same day when...

The room and the bathroom were dirty, and the beds were very uncomfortable. The room was so cold, it had humidities and it had a strange smell every day. Also, the hostel staff was very impolite. I really don't recommend this hostel.

Nice location, kind staff, good breakfast. The sheets were clean and so was the room. We were a large group and no one had a complaint. We went there on december and the temperature was perfect in all the rooms. The only thing is that the WIFI on the first floor had a poor signal.

This hostel was OK. It wasn't bad but it isn't the best. The rooms are clean but quite small and cramped - we were at the front of the building so had the noise of trams coming by through the night and people coming through reception. It's about a 15/20 minute walk from the train station, and was easy to...

This is the cheapest hostel that I've ever come across only 5 euro a night!!!! This means that you can stay the night for the price of a pint of beer in my native Ireland. The hostel is unreal value. The hostel is decent especially for the price. The rooms and showers are standard enough but clean. The cooking facilities...

I went to this hostel with my class and it was okey, the beds aren't so comfortable but that's just matter of taste. Bathroom is available in every room which is a big plus. Breakfast served every morning, not the best but edible. The hotel is located centrally. I could recommend this for school classes or a big group of...

We loved this hostel. The location was good at only fifteen minutes walk from the center. It was clean, spacious and really uniquely decorated. There was a good atmosphere and the staff were nice and helpful. There were children in this hostel, but this does not stop an atmosphere for fun if you are a young traveller looking for a...

“If you have a light sleep don't chose a private room as they are close to the reception and to come inside the hostel everyone has to ring a very loud bell.”

“Book a private room if you need more privacy. Altough, for young people it's nice to share rooms. You get in contact with others.”
