Quite grotty, no atmosphere (bumped into no other backpackers) straaangeeee bear motif running throughout the hostel (whatever that signifies) and staff not overly friendly or helpful.

Happy with the quality of the services (help you find good places to visit and flexibles), good and clean everywhere and safe with the help of electronic key + the one for the room. Rented a private room for 3, including our own bathroom, all for 18,75€ a night. At first the bed can seem hard but actually very comfortable...

A great budget hostel. Expect; friendly, helpful staff; noise from other guests as they meet and exchange experiences; basic but clean/comfortable accommodation. Don't expect; meals, aircon (although fans are available ), towels, toiletries (although a towel is provided, it's really only to dry hands), memory foam mattresses or finest linen. The hostel is well-placed for trams & other transport into...

Needed a quick place just for the night and this place was perfect. Very clean room and bathroom, was pretty close to the center and was inexpensive. Staff was crazy friendly and were so easy going and chill. Felt comfortable here. Also ended up with a room to myself so that was dope.

Had our own room, which was very clean and spacious. Bathrooms were also clean, but the kitchen was only ok, not very well equipped but it was fine for a short stay. Location is a bit far from the centre, we were fine to walk it, but others might not be. The staff were really helpful.
