Liked: The room and the toilets were clean. Hostel is located very close to s-bahn station and some supermarkets (with food only)

Disliked: Wifi connection was available only on the ground floor. Hostel is quite far from main city atractions or markets. One cannot bring own food to hostel.

Liked: It's cheap

Disliked: Toilets are too tiny to turn around without opening the door (average person here). Horrible design in most facilities. Each sink has two faucets at opposite side, either freezing cold or boiling hot, nothing in between. The shower jumps from freezing cold to boiling without any reason all the time. Slow internet and only downstairs. In general the hostel feels very uncomfortable and way too big.

Liked: Good location, reception service

Disliked: The guests were not allocated well: some one-man-and-one-woman couples sleep in the same bed in the 8-bed dorm. When intimacy was performed it became embarrassing. Also the snoring of some guest got too loud to disturb my sleep.

Liked: Is cheap and the guys from the free walking tour come there to pick you up.

Disliked: The WIFI was terrible, almost impossible to use. I have to go to a little cafe internet next block to use a good internet. I really need internet to do some work in the nights, but it was just incredible slow all day long. Bathrooms where not clean, some with vomit and puke. Locker was in bad condition. There where not enough energy points to charge your phones/cameras. They charge you for everything, even to storage your bags for a couple of hours.

Liked: This was by far the best hostel I have stayed in. The staff were friendly and keen to offer helpful tips about some of the less explored parts of the city, allowing me to find 'hidden gems'. The facilities were great and very clean. Transport into the main part of town is close and we'll serviced by train, bus and tram. Definitely recommend this hostel!!
