  • Worst hostel ever! Dirty, smelly, one shower between two floors of people It did not feel safe, the hostel guy was too busy measuring out weed to check us in for ages. Expensive for what is was. no wifi in rooms. Would never stay here again!

  • It´s a horrible hostel, the smallest room I´ve ever been and the bathrooms are always dirty. Besides my friend was trapped in the bathroom for more than an hour cause the door was stocked, at the end the manager came and broke the door with a hammer so she could get out.

  • The staff was awesome, when they showed up later in the day...The whole thing with checking in at another hostel, SUCKS! It's confusing and time consuming. When I went to check out it was worse, the owner finally showed up, at the door (in his UNDERWEAR) after knocking and having to go to bobs hostel to see what I'm suppose to do ( it was 8:45am), took about 20 mins, and walking back and forth with all my heavy bags! And the door handle feel off my room door, and no locks for the lockers! WORSE!

  • The Hostel itself could be amazing. Its a perfect Location, and a good house. The 8 Bed Dorm is to tight and dark, but the rooms are ok. The staff, the manager in particular is mostly unfrienly, not fair and not trustworthy at all ! Furthermore the WIFI sucks hard. Reception is in the coffeeshop downstairs. Its a good place for stoned people to stay.

  • Terribly bad hostel, no reception, just the same woman who is selling the coffeeshop is dealing with the entries without any security, crazy prices for the quality. Bathrooms, is better go over the river.
