clifford knowles thinks…

"The location is almost perfect, Right in the center of the old town and 5 minutes walk from almost any location. The rooms have locks and the toilets are extremely clean. Its more like a small hotel…"

Liked: I liked the interior and cleanliness in the house, assistance of the staff, and location in the city centre.

Disliked: The hostel consists of two houses. There is no doorman in one house so if you want to get in you have to either call the doorbell and wait until somebody from another building comes and opens it or you have to go directly to that house and ask.

Liked: Good value, good location, wi-fi throughout. Kitchen you can use.

Disliked: A bit drab. No beer available, soft drinks and water are expensive at 2 euros each! Breakfast buffet is too expensive at 4 euros for bread, balogna, cheese, cornflakes, yogurt, coffee, some tomatoes and sliced cucumbers. Bring your own food for breakfast.

Liked: Had a single room in the 'guesthouse' which was clean and pleasantly if basically furnished.Nice atmosphere with adequate kitchen and shower and toilet facilities. Excellent 'old town ' location and easy to find.

Disliked: Toilet rather cramped but this is a very minor fault.

Liked: Room decoration and location

Disliked: The room was cold - we had to ask for a radiator as the one in the room didn't work. The curtains could do with being thicker to keep more light out

Liked: The most beautiful receptionist I have ever seen was there. Even I still don't know her name :))

Disliked: The other receptionists warned us not to throw cigarette end to the pavement as an order when we asked her where to smoke. She didn't want to open the back garden because she said there's a couple staying. (we were 2 males) Her sounding was like kinda discrimination. Of course I would not throw it to the pavement.

Liked: bunks have 1.5 size bed on the bottom - big enough for the two of us

Disliked: The dorm room didnt lock and there are no lockers. Also we were put in the guesthouse building, which is a couple doors down from the main building and reception. Therefore you must go to the main building and get someone to let you in, and if there is only one person working you could have to wait to get in. There is also only one shower for the whole guesthouse (9 beds).

Liked: The location was great, right in the Old Town. Most of the staff was friendly and helpful when asked for information.

Disliked: It was pretty stuffy in the room (ground floor) at night, even with two windows open, but it is Summer and being a northern country it is not surprising they don't have AC. The noise level was something that was bothersome. Always bring earplugs!
