We stayed at this hostel just for one night, we decided to sleep there after giving a look at few other places and we decided that we liked it the most. The location is very close to the city center and the decoration is young and nice. We had a double room with private bathroom at the last floor of the building, stairs were small and high but we were just travelling with a backpack so it wasn't a problem at all. Next to our room there was also a small common room with two computers with internet connection. They have a common kitchen where they arrange the breakfast in the morning, a common room with sofas and a big table, and a nice garden ouside. Our room was nice and the bathroom was big, but the shower curtain was very very dirty with mould, so I just didn't use it and flood the floor with water. The biggest problem was that we couldn't use the heating because if we plugged our electric heater we produced a blackout in the whole building! The guy that was at the recption at night was very friendly, he told us that it was too late to call for a technician so he offered us an extra quilt, but despite this we had quite a cold night, being in January. What sounded strange to me, was that the other guests told us that there had been the same problem through all the week, so I wonder why they didn't try to fix it before. The day after our cold night we complained with the guy at the reception (now there was a new one) and after insisting a lot he made us an acceptable discount, so at least I can say that we paid for what we had. Maybe beacuse we were late at the breakfast, we found it a bit poor (little bread with marmalade, milk, coffee). Anyway, if it wasn't for the heating not working, I would recommend it.
