    The best stay I ever had

    This hostel was the best I've ever stayed. All clean and comfortable. Close to the town center and a view from the lounge was nice.

  • 4.0.Fair

    One night stay in a shared 4 bedded room dorm

    The place gives a "too compact feel" and made us feel really claustrophobic... the pods/beds are really close to each other in the room, hallway really narrow... the toilets and bathrooms are ok, but there were no hooks to place your towels/clothes, floors were wet most of the time, soaked bath mats etc...just little things like that, but these are important things! The beds are really comfortable, and the pods themselves are well designed.
