2/10 Poor

They cancelled my reservation at the last moment, but kept my money. Refusing to refund. Staff very unhelpful and very slow. I wanted to say "you get what you pay for", but in this case I paid money and got nothing. So my sincere recco is to stay away from this shady place.

Location was superb—walking distance to city center and the central railway station. The rooms were clean, and everyone was friendly.

6/10 Good

Good location and nice lobby with good kitchen facilities for all guests. However, our "private room with window" turned out to be non-ventilated, and the window was deliberately locked. The result being that there was no fresh air whatsoever and about 25 degrees room temperature for the night.

It is a basic hostel for the price almost equal to a hotel room somewhere else. Need to pay for towels separate. Shared bath room every time seems someone is always in it. Basic shower…total disappointment for the price!

Great hostel in a great location.
I love this hostel because of the small details that makes traveling easy and convenient. Curtains give privacy for each dorm bed, the bathrooms are clean, door code is sent ahead of time, plenty to watch on tv, and basics for cooking in the kitchen.
