The hotel looks and feels like a hip youth hostel. The rooms are not fancy/glamorous but rather comfy.
I loved it. In the hotel has a martini bar as well. The bar was well attended. I could not hear the noise of the bar in my room!
One big downside though is that the elevator to the rooms is accessible by everybody, not just hotel guests. I would have preferred an hotel-guest-only elevator key...or some kind of higher security system. Same for the stairways.
After checking out from the hotel, there was the possibility to leave the luggage with the hotel. The luggages are locked with a rope so that they cannot be stolen but are accessible by everybody - so make sure you lock you luggage since people could go and open your zippers. I didn't trust the storage enough, so I only left my luggage but took my laptop and all other electronic devices with me. This was quite inconvenient.
In overall, I loved my stay and would stay there again. Though I would not bring any valuables along.
