  • The staff made a mixed up regarding the payment of the deposit. It would be nice if they clarified the issue and not make the guest look unproffesional in front of other guests.

  • Hostel was clean. we had a room with a shower and sink, which was very nice. The hostel had a band and cheap drinks at night, if you wanted to stay up, however the hostel was not loud and very close to everything. highly recommended.

  • The security doesn't seem too tight and the location is not exactly close to the main train station. With that said the hostel is amazing. I stayed in the mega dorm which is very clean and bright during the day. The lockers are big and the bathrooms are clean as well. The wifi is spotty in some spots but overall works great. Outlets are scarce though. Overall great experience

  • I think the only complaints I would have is the inconsistent wifi and how the showers turn off after seven seconds. But everything else was great. There was a nice bar for if you wanted to socialize but the rooms were quiet for when you wanted to sleep. The bathrooms and rooms were quiet clean and spacious. And, to top it all off, the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy theme was super cool.

  • Hostel was location in a good part of town close to Museum Island and other attractions. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was average. The lockers in the rooms were extremely noisy and some of the beds were damaged causing them to make annoying noises during the night when you toss and turn.
