An Ok stay - that is what you paid for a hostel
The available floor space of "bunk unit pod" is smaller than expected, basically only sufficient for you to open up a small luggage. The good side is you have your own private place. There is no active ventilation so not sure how it works in summer time (visited at autumn time which is still comfortable in term or temp). Staffs are friendly and helpful! The closest parking is Q&R parking which cost you euros 14 per day - a tricky parking where you must have credit card to access it and only Dutch language on the machine!

Clean and fresh accommodation at reasonable price
A nice surprise. I stayed in a private room with private bathroom. The room was well furnished and comfortable and I loved the real plants in the room and passage. The hotel is within walking distance of the centre and around the corner form the station. The hotel has a great concept with the differing accommodation that it offers and I can highly recommend it.

Jättebra!
Extremt trevligt boende, stannade här 1 natt då jag reste igenom maastricht, väldigt fräscht men ändå enkelt! Sov i en sovsal och det var helt okej! inte alls så högljutt eller högljutt. Fint hus med innegård och bra wifi. Mycket nöjd med min vistelse.
