  • Excellent location, very close to the train station. Very friendly and helpful staff. Stayed in a private dorm and expected less, but the room was very spacey, clean, own sink and free wifi on 5th floor. Very nice atmosphere and the breakfast for 8 EUR was good as well.

  • Its clean and safe (thought no personal safe at the room we we're staying in.) but the place is like an old abandoned hotel and is spread out across multiple buildings. No social gathering place - but you could just hang out at the Yellow Hostel which is right around the corner and has an awesome atmosphere. overall you have better priced places right around the corner - i'd only come here if other options are totally booked up or you want too have peace and quiet and a premium bed/bath.

  • They expect you to pay for wifi use. €2 a day or €5 for the length of your stay. And this is per each device. Free wifi on the 5th floor. Close to the train station which is nice, but a little bit of a walk to the sites. More hotel than hostel. Many families and older people. Rooftop was nice, but the atmosphere of the hostel was pretty reserved, definitely not a place to stay if you're looking to go out. Nothing was open at night as far as bars/clubs. Failed several times trying to go out.

  • I stayed in the separate building to reception which was no problem (free Wifi in each room instead of only on one floor in the main building) on two separate occasions on my recent trip in a 4 bed dorm. Room and bathrooms were great. The only problem was that during my second stay (only for one night), there had been a mix up with who they had placed in what dorm room and it took at least 2 hours to fix it. By this time, it was 1.30am and I found the staff member on duty then very unhelpful.
