We ended up at this place because we had no other to go. They cut our heads off with the price and the atention was poor, they retrieved from us the money from the keys, bad beds and cold rooms in winter. Just terrible. Location may be the only good thing, but this place should be your very last choice.

This is possibly the worse place that I've ever stayed. I have bite marks all over my body. The bathrooms were horrid. Not a place where you feel refreshed after having a shower. I will not be staying there again, only + side is its next to a café

The breakfast was not very good, just bread coffee/tea, jelly and peanut butter. The bedroom and bathroom was good and cleaned. But there was no curtains for the shower, so, after the bath there was water all over.

The hostel is a two minute walk to all the cafe's, bars etc. You get what you pay for! The hostel was clean and we didnt have any problems. It was a bit noisy but overall, a perfect place to lay your head!

We started our weekend and in the middle of the night discovered our room had BED BUGS crawling up the walls and on our pillows and bed sheets, a horrible night... The next day we had our room changed to another one on a different floor and still found bed bugs so we decided to leave because it was disgusting....

I had booked 2 beds for 4 nights and paid the whole stay upfront. Due to a delay in my visa and flight, I had to arrive the next day. I sent them an email about my situation and informed them of my delay, when I arrived the following night at 11pm, I found out that they had cancelled my...

Location is the only good point. No communal room to meet anyone. Bathroom is far too small for 6 ppl. Noisy at night. Best area of the hostel is taken up by an abundance rental bikes that never get used the terrace. Charged by the bag to leave bag at reception after checkout. Workers don't seam to be too friendly....

This hostel is located in a perfect part of town, near a lot of the museums, bars and restaurants. The rooms are basic and furnishings could be better but the staff are very helpful and helped me when needed.
