Had a private double room. We loved our slightly unusual triangle-shaped room, it was spotlessly clean and really comfortable. This place is really really well designed, and the location is perfect. The Jacuzzis on the roof were closed with no notice which was a shame, but that doesn't change the fact that this is a fantastic place to stay. We'll definitely be back.

Definitely book Generator!
I love the late checkout ability, it is at an additional cost (€15 for private rooms, €5 for dorms) that allow you to checkout at 1pm instead of 10am. The rooms (both private and dorm) were very clean and super comfortable. Front desk staff were great, both day and night time. My only critique would be the restaurant thy is downstairs, little confused as to how this operates. There isn’t wait staff to order from and isn’t a clear marker for where you can order. Other than that, placement of this hostel is great for being right downtown and the closest subway is about a 5 min walk.
