I left the hostel, lost my card and a week after a payment was made on my revolut account with receipt issued. Sent the receipt email and the hostel refused the reimbursement even with the receipt sent and the amount being Withrow from my bank account. They charge without issuing receipts on place so be aware. They used it as an excuse. They illegally hide from client their booking info, which they should keep, since client data is asked as soon the client arrives. The kitchen closes at 8pm and clients are double billed if they eat after. A client told me that spent a week without paying. I dont have to pay for others stayings!.

A bit far from the city centre in a residential neighbourhood but the team station is close by. Affordable and clean, with a big common area and bar downstairs. You can also buy souvenirs at their lobby.

Patrik is the best receptionist I‘ve ever met. He is awesome, a treasure to keep in your Youth Hostel. The Hostel is also really nice. Some weirdos hanging around but nothing big. The chef is super nice, his food is delicious. Thanks for making my stay wonderful.

i'm giving three stars because it gets a one star deduction for the overpriced meals, and a one star deduction for not having a kitchen. travelers on a budget could use a kitchen or a cheaper meal. same company in luxembourg had the same meal for less than half the price charged here. otherwise they sell public transport tickets and some souvenirs. the alcohol is semi-reasonably priced. there is absolutely no atmosphere. the beds are nice and the rooms are clean 7/10.
