Central location, Comfortable stay
Very central location, across the street from the train station. Great amenities, lobby and bar. 6-person mixed dorm was spacious and clean. The surrounding area is not safe at night because of its location across from the train station.

Good for partying!
Cool youthful and fun hotel with no curfew. But got single bed room when I ordered a double from looking at the pictures. Room smelt like feces , but auring out helped the problem. Otherwise a nie hotel. Would visit again! Near the Central station:)))

Absolutely brilliant. Went for a 30th - twin rooms were absolutely fine for what we needed, no different to a hotel. Bar was cracking. Met some great people. Really good location, next to the station.

Not value for money
Location: Great location close to the station. Access to public transport Rooms: very small and cramped Parking: there is no parking in the hotel. You have to look for a car park nearby Check-in: took a long time
Varun, in1 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Avoid at all costs if possible
Rooms were too small and tight, hard to move around with 6 bed and everyone with their stuff. Bathroom with shower and toilet extremely tight. Front desk for 2 males were not very friendly. Never told me about the 6 euros needed for the towel (I brought my own) and never asked me if i wanted breakfast. They just checked me in without even really caring about me because they didn't even look at me. Just handed me my room key and thats it. I even asked for a bottom bunk since i stayed for 2 nights and was told they were all full. Later i noticed 2 bottom bunks had girls that only stayed 1 night so they could have easily moved them to a top bunk and me to a bottom bunk. Ladies that helped me with my plane ticket to print were very nice. Location is good next to train station and free walking tour is picked up at 10:30am on time. Other then that, avoid at all costs.
