Good 7.8 From 73 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Good value, quiet location
Stayed here for three nights at new year. Facilities were very good, and the building was very modern and spacious. The room was small and basic, but very warm and with a comfortable bed. Location was a little out of the way, altough there was a bus stop two minutes away, and a metro stop a ten minute (uphill) walk away, along with some bars, cafes, takeaways and shops. The buffet breakfast was very basic continental fare. The only issue I had with my stay was that check-in seemed to take a very long time. This was especially surprising as I received an email prior to my stay asking for me to provide my details, in order to speed up the check-in process on arrival. Overall though, I was happy with my stay. Although the location may be further from town than some people would like, the facilities were very good for the price

Good 6.0
Decent food and cheaper than restaurant options in town. Friendly staff. Rooms in good condition. Lights are quite dim, which I guess helps when other people are sleeping. Closets in rooms are missing locks or rings to use a padlock.

Would recommend !
I had a single room with shared bathroom. The bed was comfortable and clean. I was facing the inner building where people gathered in the evenings so it could get loud, but tolerable. The hostel is a far from the train station, and a 6 minute walk to the nearest bus or 10 minutes to the nearest metro station. breakfast was what you could expect from a hostel, nothing exceptional, but it did the job. Didn’t have any wifi connection issues.

Not your average Hostel
The location was great, and you get a lot for the price. Service was super friendly and helpful. No AC in the rooms so it was a little warm. Loved how close they are to the lake and running trails.
