Liked: Everything looks new, close to subway station, friendly and helpful staff

Disliked: The bunker beds were quite squeaky, every movement me or my "neighbor upstairs" did, we could hear a small symphony. Unfortunately its locations in on a big street crossing, so you can hear the TRAMs down there, so aim for a higher floor :)

Liked: The rooms are quite large, clean and have personal lock boxes for valuables beside the bed. Bar is a great place to make new friends and have a quiet beer. Having the u bahn on its doorstep makes getting around and going out easy.

Disliked: Place needs a kitchen and it would be perfect.

Liked: Great atmosphere, location, bar, luggage storage, showers and free wifi in all rooms. Very clean and I was in rooms where there were singles and bunk beds mixed in.

Disliked: Really good keycard based security only let down by individual lockers being a bit too small, in the 5 bedroom I was in, you could fit a laptop, but in the 4 bedroom it would just fit a wallet and phone in.

Liked: Excellent facilities: beds were comfortable, rooms spacious, plenty of toilets and showers, excellent safes for each bunk. Very clean, nice colour scheme. The hostel has made a real effort to organise events for guests and create a social and party atmopshere.

Disliked: If you are looking for a small place to get to know people, or a quiet stay this place is more oriented towards young partying types.

Liked: Great place! Ideal central location. Right next to metro and tram. good food around. very clean and well maintained hostel. Cool atmosphere. Spacious rooms, even the 10 bed. secure lockers (bring your own locks). Cute bar down stairs, although when we popped our head in a few times its seemed quite quiet.

Disliked: Not very much actually. The traffic noise and sirens at all hours at the interesction was annoying, but i guess it comes with central city location. Oh and theres only one lift and we couldnt seem to find stairs to go up from the inside was odd, so we had to wait for the slow lift all the time

Liked: Super Hostel, mit dem du nichts falsch machen kannst! Modern und wirklich sauber. Sehr gute Verkehrsanbindung. Gemütliche Atmosphäre. Besonders gefallen haben mir wichtige Kleinigkeiten wie ausreichend Haken im Zimmer und Badezimmer, Spiegel, Deko, Nachtlampe usw.. Das Frühstücksbufett für 5Eur ist sehr zu empfehlen. Im 4 Bettzimmer waren keine Etagenbetten, juhu Einzelbetten!

Disliked: Das Zimmer war zur Straßenseite. Bedingt durch warmes Wetter war das Fenster offen, somit war es umso lauter. Die Tram fuhr direkt unterm Fenster ab. Es war echt laut. Aber nun gut, das Hostel hat eine gute Verkehrsanbindung. Da müssen einige Zimmer zur Straße ausgerichtet sein. Lässt sich wohl nicht vermeiden.

Liked: Great hostel for meeting other people as the bar downstairs was very popular. Huge rooms with plenty of hanging space for clothes and towels and lockers for valuables. The 5 euro all you can eat breakfast was really good value and went until well after lunch which was great!

Disliked: The free wi-fi at the hostel didnt work most of the time as it was too busy, when it did work it was slow and cut out constantly. Would not recommend this hostel if you want to get a lot of sleep as it definitely is a party hostel!
