  • Overall great experience. Perfect location. Easy to find and check in. Clean showers. The rooms can get pretty hot though.

  • The hostel is great! You can meet friendly people from all over the world there, they have a funny daily programm in the hostel bar and you have a big, clean room with an own bathroom (only thing whats missing is a mirror) and cozy beds. Best Hostel ever I'll come back!

  • The location was excellent, about 15 minutes from the train station and close to many restaurants.

  • Having stayed at both Budget Backpackers and Kick Ass Hostels (I think they're the same company or group), I prefer Budget Backpackers. They cook more food at Budget than at Kick Ass, but KA does have food available also. The pool table at Budget is definitely better than the one at Kick Ass, tho both are free. That said, both are great hostels, especially for the price. Very, very clean, unique artwork all over the place, good bathroom facilities. I'll stay at Budget next time though.
