  • Excellent location and very easy to meet other travellers. Bar was closed during my stay. Also no blankets in the room, and was cold at night.

  • There was an A/C installed in my room (107) during my stay which made it impossible to close the window fully - that will be a problem during the winter since sometimes it was way too cold in the night, and I was there in May!

  • First, the good. This hostel is the most unique I've ever stayed at with the layout and everything looks new. The place is big and it would be easy to not run into another person here. The rooms are only 3 beds which is nice. Bad is that this hostel attracts people who don't know how to hostel. And the SEVERE CONSTRUCTION on the rooms around mine at 730am (talking drills, saws and metal scraping). Which by the way the construction workers used our bathroom and made sure to make it disgusting

  • Everything was excellent except for one thing - the Internet. Wifi connection was fine but internet speed was extremely slow. This is a major pain for those of us far from home. It's something so important that I would switch hostels because of it in the future. Other than that the hostel was awesome.

  • I didn't find the staff very helpful or friendly. I had to figure my way around the hostel myself and I would have appreciated a little more guidance upon checking in. Thankfully the other guests staying there were very welcoming and helpful.

  • Nice atmosphere, very social. Rooms can be a bit cold during winter, extra blankets are availible. Some bathrooms didn't really have hot water, but knowing that it is easy to just use another one. Good kitchen facilities.

  • Great hostel, great location!! Only downside, they charge you extra for everything (towel, internet, luggage..).
