Grand place to stay!
Grand place to stay! Rooms were clean, staff were friendly, close to transport and a walk from the city center. Only flaw would be walls are paper thin so could be a problem if you’re a light sleeper!

Poor 2.0
Stay away! There are far better hostels around!
This place was just terrible. The rooms are unkept and they let just about anyone in this place! Drunkards and loud roomies made me furious! I’ve stayed at many hostels throughout the US and Europe and there are rules and a sense of mutual respect for one another. I will never stay there again! In addition- they weren’t the least expensive hostel in the area! Stay clear of this place.

Exceptional 10.0
Very comfortable and central location perfect for an overnight stay after a long trip and you need to get a train the following day! Staff very helpful and made check in swift and easy! Made things easy when I had to store for a couple of hours awhile I checked out and had to wait several hour for my train! Very central and very helpful staff!
Kenneth, ie1 night trip
Good 6.0
Convenient location for late night check-in and the airport bus stops nearby. No toiletries for the private rooms. I think housekeeping might have come in briefly to take the garbage but no other housekeeping services were provided. The shower requires pressing a button every 5 seconds to conserve water and the water does not drain well. Heat is minimal in the room and cannot be controlled by the guest. Breakfast consists of juice, milk, coffee, tea, bread, and cereal.
