  • I thought that most of the negative comments about the hostel were overreacting. But when i got there, i realized that they were right, night staff was horrible and the rooms were super dirty, i have travelled all around Asia and this hostels quality was the same as the poorest hostels there except they costed 30euros less. Location bad, 30minutes to the center by bus. Avoid this place, really.

  • Too bad you couldn't open the windows - especially with 6 (!) people in the room showering and sleeping a little fresh air would prevent the morning headache I have had at your place. Otherwise, for the price of 5 euros a decent breakfast and really nice personnel at the reception.

  • One of my favorite hostels I've stayed at this trip. Although it's not close to the city center, the tram is right outside the front door. There are also plenty of dörner shops, restaurants, and non-touristy stores nearby. The rooms are very nice, clean, and comfy. The bathrooms are simply impressive.

  • The Hostel is a bit far from the city centre, but there's busses (21) and trans (7) that go there really fast, but it costs 2,90 each way (or you can buy the day ticket for 7,50) There's a bathroom inside the room and it was really clean and with a great shower! The problem is that there's only 4 small lockers in the room for 8 beds. Also the hostel look like a hotel, there isnt a common area. I don't recommend this hostel for staying a lot, but for couple days is nice!

  • Despite the many unfavourable comments, accommodation and facilities were very satisfactory for the price paid. Guests should be aware that the web advertised price does not include government tax or VAT. So guests will be caught having to pay "extra".

  • A gentleman at the front desk was very rude with us for just doing a question. We were greeted by a very friendly young man the day before, but this man who seemed the owner of the establishment was very rude, and the lady who was working at breakfast and threw the dishes without any care and being rude to the guests .

  • Location not so good, but good value for money anyway. Nice and clean room. Ice lady at front desk should get other job that doesn´t include talking to people.
