  • Don't stay here, it's like a prison cell, I never met the owner and had to deal with Bob's Hostel down the street to get my key and €20 deposit on the key. On top of that if you have a big bag, good luck getting to the top floor cause it was like we were in the Lord of the rings climbing a mountain.

  • Very rude receptionist checked me in which gave me a very bad first impression that stuck with me for the whole stay.

  • One window was broken and there was a horrible smell like rotten eggs in the room. The lady at the counter didn't seem to care when we pointed the problem out. We finally got the owner who tried to fix the window and the smell which disappeared after the first night. The location is good though.

  • I usually don't have too high expectations of hostels, but the first-impression was shockingly bad: the reception is actually a bar (full of smoke when we arrived), rooms are too small, wi-fi does not work on the top floor where me and my boy were, plus the wi-fi password is "pleaseleveatip" which doesn't sound very friendly or funny at first. Then we didn't manage to get the heater working except one of the nights when it did (not sure how/why). Price does not include 5% tax! Friendly staff.

  • The hostel was really dirty and the room small. The man at the reception brute. I don't recommend this hostel.

  • I wasn't really happy seeing our room, because there was less space and we decided to stay one night and leave the next day. For this supply the price doesn't stand in relation to.

  • We got very tiny room, Internet didn't work in the room behind the roof. Otherwise everything was quite okay, the location is great.

  • What more can you expect from the price? Very cheap and located very central so you can't really complain. Perfect for a couple of days stay if you plan to spend your nights out on town. Definitely safe and clean.
