Everything about my stay was exactly what I would expect from a hostel: small clean room, lots of world travellors sharing stories and tips and food and wine, free tours, big community kitchen. I LOVE HOSTELS! I WOULD EVEN ADD THAT HOSTELS HAVE BECOME MORE FAMILY FRIENDLY. THERE WAS A BUSLOAD OF SMART SWEET WELL BEHAVED 3RD GRADERS ON A SCHOOL FIELD TRIP.

This was the first time I have stayed in a Hostel. Everything was nice until at 5 am, one of the people staying in the room kept hitting the snooze on his alarm for 15 min. I finally got up and left for the hotel i was staying in for the rest of the week.

The hostel is amazing! We loved our room, which was upgraded to have a private bathroom. The staff was lovely and the location is ideal. We will definitely be coming back.

Exceptional 10.0
It is a very good hostel. The only drawback is that the heat in my room was very noisy.
Cristina, ca1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Clean hostel
The hostel is well-run, with reasonable facilities and a good location. Compared to other IH hostels, it could make improvements in breakfast (no food labeling, no fresh fruit, little variety), kitchen (appliances well beyond their useful life) and storage (no electronic locks). Hostel organizes regular activities, but some, such as the common dinner, fill up very quickly.
Henning, us5 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Great value for a budget friendly option.
The value is where this place shines. The location is hard to beat even if you take price out of the equation. Very good breakfast, every day was biscuits, sausage, cereals, yogurt, orange juice and coffee. The beds and pillows are OK. Not the best night sleep. Friendly staff. What else can you want?
