It was a very nice hostel, with nice people who were ready to help. It is clean and there are a lot of sitting areas. The breakfast was really good and so was the WiFi. You have an own fridge with another room and you can hire bikes for a good price.

Really quirky hostel in a prime location. Very friendly staff. Kitchen was clean and well equipped. Lots of social areas to chill out in and a 6bed dorm was very spacious. Highly recommended this hostel.

Best Hostel I have ever stayed in and I mean that. The best thing about this place is that its unique. Besides that it has everything you can expect from accommodation. Its very well designed/decorated, kept very clean, the bathrooms have a rare feeling (for a hostel) of privacy, and the staff are honestly second to none. I don't think...

We had to relocate to the lobby in order to speak with other people staying at the hostel, which can be pretty annoying. I...
