I stayed here for 3 nights and I had a great time. It's a great place to stay, whether you're on your own or with friends. It's a very social hostel with a decent bar and outside area where you can hang out. All the staff were great and very helpful. It's also in a great spot, just a short...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Can't fault the location, it's close enough to the old town but not so close you can't get a decent sleep! Beds were comfy and rooms were clean. The bar was very quiet whilst we were here but it is the middle of winter so no real surprise there, I imagine it's more fun down...

Really enjoyed this hostel it had a pub with lots of local beers to try out, the staff were super friendly and helped me find everything I wanted in the city, the hostel had an atm right at the entrance and the wifi signal everywhere in the hostel, my room was clean and really close to the showers.

Great staff, location and the place is comfortable. I could not ask for something better! It is a big help that the Hostel has a kitchen and there is a big supermarket 2 minutes far... Also the city center is like 5 minutes walking and everything is nearby.

This is a good choice! Great to have an ATM on the doorstep, GIANT jenga, ping pong table, reception bar, and be very close to the supermarket and Old Town! Walking distance to the metro and a number of cafes, bars and shopping centres.

Another stay, another great time. Staff was wonderful, location is key as always. Can't ask for a lot more! Perfect location to go visit local monuments and tourist sites, as well as get to the old city center to party all night. Beds were comfortable and the facilities were very clean.
