  • Everything was just ok, however I was located on the first floor with the window just above the street where people from the hostel would go out to smoke, they would stand if front of the door and smoke a cigarette. All the smoke was coming throught the open window to my room, unfortunatelly it was too hot to keep the window closed. Everything else was just fine.

  • I did not get to stay at the hostel as my flight was delayed. But in my contact with staff they were punctual in responding to emails, friendly and efficient. I would have been keen to stay!

  • They advertise free wifi around the building but it doesn't work really once you leave the lobby. The person at reception wasn't very friendly or welcoming. The place was very clean and big and well organized.

  • Reasonably clean. Good value. Only thing missing is a better gathering area for socializing (i.e. bar/game room/tv room).

  • This hostel is as cozy as a hybrid between prison and hospital. That being said though, it is clean with all useful amenities available and a friendly and helpful staff so still a good choice for budget travellers.

  • Great Hostel! Love the free transit to and from the airport. Hotel staff were extremely helpful and nice, espeicially Andrian (might not spelling right). The train ticket service in the hotel is super convenient for me to take a side trip to Montreux and Chilon. Beautiful city to visit and great hostel!
