Absolutely brilliant. Went for a 30th - twin rooms were absolutely fine for what we needed, no different to a hotel. Bar was cracking. Met some great people. Really good location, next to the station.

great location. rather arsy and prickly guy on reception....long Q to check in. Once we then had a very helpful female member of staff come back from break, then things improved exponentially.

The hostel is decent and location is convenient. Not really a lot of interaction with staff needed, it’s a building that should be more of a hotel. The elevators are slow and we got stuck in one of them. There’s only one shower per room of 8 and the showers themself have barely any pressure - that was very annoying. Overall the hostel is good and is you standard average hostel

Ett hotell som ligger centralt. Fina rum och bra service. Frukosten hade det kunnat finnas lite mer utbud på.

The place was in a great location. Unfortunately they were unable to find my name or a booking number - despite the fact that I could prove I had paid in full using the app. As a result I had to pay again.

Corridors are not clean - feels like a construction site. Room is decent but small.

В общем, взял 6-местную комнату заранее, не ошибся. Немного дороже 8-местной, зато никаких бомжей/алкашей и прочих бедолаг. Если по-порядку: 1. Wi-Fi отстой, еле работал в комнате, чуть лучше работал в лобби/холле 2. туалет и душ раздельные, но настолько тесные, ни развернуться, ни руку поднять 3. Для того, чтобы держать вещи в сохранности вам нужно купить мини бля*ь замок. Это вообще не шутка, я вот купил за 4 евро возле хостела, сейчас не знаю куда его деть. 4. Весьма шумно от окон, но я жил на дальней кровати и мне не мешало. Если у вас чуткий сон, вам может быть некомфортно 5. Рядом вокзал, район вообще интересный... Немцев вы увидите только в радиусе 2-3 километров от хостела)) держите руки на карманах 6. клевый бар, цены сравнительно невысокие 7. на стойке можете приобрести всё: полотенца, шампуни и прочее В целом, своих денег не стоит, очень печальный хостел наверное, советую переплатить 5-20 евро и взять что-то чуть дороже

The room is very small , my partner and I could bearly turn around, and we are two small female. The comforter is thin, but the location is great. Even with that price, the room should be better.
