We turned up at the hostel at 9 p.m. getting desperate to find somewhere to stay and the receptionost was superfriendly, helpfull and gave us tips where to spend the evening. The room was clean and warm, the bathroom too, breakfast was OK and the atmosphere was very relaxed. I would definitely come back again.

Great location, clean and friendly. The rooms are big and tidy. The en suite toilet has hot water working fine but it can get really wet after a shower. A bit cold during the nights but the duvet was really good. Very recommendable!

Stayed for one night. First thing i noticed is how clean the place is. The receptionist was very friendly and the power sockets above the beds is very useful. Its reasonably priced and ideally located. Couldn't give 5 stars as i did not get a great sleep because the matress was rock hard.
