Liked: The room was comfortable and the hostel was located centrally enough for us to walk to the city center for activities. Even though the hostel was full, it was not noisy. We were not disturbed by our neighbors at all.

Disliked: It would have been nice to have a refrigerator in the room.

Liked: Not much

Disliked: You had to go to Hotel Santa Claus to book in, 600 metres away. Having had to walk 1.5kms from the bus station with our big packs (we are almost 70) this was not much fun. There are no staff on site at Hostel Rudolf, and we never saw any other travellers, except in the kitchen. It was like living in a morgue. The place had no character whatsoever. The kitchen was chronically short of crockery - 5 plates/bowls, about 6 cups - had hotplates that took 15 minutes to heat a half pan of water, no sink plug, very elderly chopping boards and most of the cutlery was plastic. It was the least inviting of the many HI hostels we have stayed in.

Liked: it's the only hostel in town ;) near the center,...clean,...nice rooms

Disliked: it's a little bit uncomfortable that you have to check in at the Hotel Santa Claus in the Citycenter and then walk to the Hostel,...because when you walk to the Hotel you can't be sure that the rooms are ready,..so it's better to wait till 2 pm,..then the rooms are for sure ready.
