    Good Hostel, did it's job. As it is very big, it's not very personal, quite anonymous. Good facilities. We had a Double Room which was more like a fancy Hotel room than a Hostel room. The location is very good, perfectly central.

    Quite okay. Has a lot of beds and even more space, so it is possible to find areas in the common places that are not as noisy as in other places. Therefore also chances to still find a place when you need it immediately. It...More
