    I stay here for two days and is was not good. You have just your room with an dirty bathroom, there is no living room to meet oder travelers. All they have is a small pup without WiFi. I can’t recommend this place. Michael

    Excellent service, great location. I think it is super affordable, relative to cost of European student hostels; yet comparable in quality. I would choose the hostel again. Wifi strength in the room could be improved though.

    Perfect for a group of friends that books a whole dorm room. The location is central. The staff is friendly and helpful. Just remember to bring your own lock for the lockers jn the dormitory room. Really enjoyed it.
