It was close to the subway station, close to a shopping area and pretty easy to find. I found that the morning/afternoon counter people weren't as friendly as the man who was doing the night shift.
For the two nights that I stayed there, there was no hot water. First I was staying in a private suite with washroom included. Our shower did not work, we were reimbursed and they fixed the shower the next day. I used the common shower, and it was lukewarm water, that turned warm but it was ice cold for a few minutes and lasted a long time. I heard other complaints about the lack of warm water. The next day, the shower was fixed but there wasn't hot water. It could be my fault because I did not bother to complain this time because it was similar to the night before. It was ice cold water.
The wifi is paid for. For the time I was there, it was 1 Euro for 30 min or 1.50Euro for 1hr. Which isn't bad, I have experienced more expensive wifi. Breakfast is pretty basic. There is juice, toast, cereal, coffee or tea. Just have to wait a long time for people to get their food. There is a bar downstairs near the washer and dryer. I was part of the Sleep Well Star for the private double, so our room was very big and we had a lot of room.
I'm not sure how I feel about this hostel. The cold water definately made the stay less enjoyable, and our room was facing the parking garage so we couldn't sleep due to the noise. We had to leave our window open or else it'd be too stuffy in the room.
