Positive Reviews


Outstanding central location

The location of this hostel stands out as possibly its best feature, according to the opinion of the majority of previous guests. Reviewers say the hostel is within just a few minutes' walk of restaurants, bars, shops and attractions, and that the central bus and train terminals are just as easily accessible by foot. The street the hostel is on is also reportedly quiet with very little traffic.


Strong, reliable Wi-Fi

Previous guests say the complimentary wireless internet provided at this hostel is strong and consistent throughout the building.


Friendly staff offer useful tips

Most reviewers found the service at this hostel very warm and welcoming, with friendly staff on reception 24 hours a day who reportedly provide helpful advice on what to see and do in the city.

Negative Reviews


Rather disappointing bathrooms

An unfortunate number of previous guests were less than satisfied with the state of the bathrooms at this hostel, with comments on the lack of cleanliness in both toilets and showers, and a number of complaints regarding the unreliable stream of hot water. Some acknowledge the state of cleanliness is not necessarily the fault of the hostel, however.


Not a youth hostel

Several reviewers say they were surprised to find many of their fellow guests were older, which meant the atmosphere was not particularly ideal for young or solo travellers looking to meet others.


Overall a little cold

According to many reports the heating in this hostel is not as effective as it could be, and several previous guests found their room and the building overall to be uncomfortably cold throughout their stay.
