"Continental breakfast is really good! It is also right next to a metro station so location is very good and easy to find. The main sights are also within walking distance. The common room is nice and provides a good…"

Liked: Breakfast was really good. Staff were kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. The hostel had a nice common area (with a bar and television) where it was easy to meet people.

Disliked: The hostel was sort of far away from the city center...but it was nice to have a metro stop close by. I stayed in a 6-bed dorm, which was fairly comfortable, but this meant that I had to use the communal women's bathroom/showers. The bathroom was not very clean and it smelled bad.

Liked: Well, the atmosphere of the hostel it self and outside area was very interesting and good for visiting new people, but it should be noticed that its a little far from the sights and you have to use the local transports. It was clean, the bathrooms and showers! Breakfast was complete buffet with lots of variety.

Disliked: the location was a little far from sights and you couldn't get there by walk. also the bunk beds were very noisy and unstable! I think they should definitely change the beds.

Liked: very good, every thing is perfect, we spend 12 euro per person to live in a 6-bed room and the free breakfast is very very good, I can never imagine such a good place can be booked in such a low price.

Liked: good location, right near metro stop, 24 hours, relatively clean, secure

Disliked: no atmosphere, not really a 'youth' hostel, no socialising or young people around looking to meet others, so wouldnt be a good hostel for solo travellers, lots of big groups travelling together

Liked: It was RIGHT THERE as soon as I got out of the metro station; so thankful for that! It has a nice lounge area with a nice atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Oh and free breakfast... Amazing! Lots to choose from and it was always fully stocked and lasted for a good chunk of the morning.

Disliked: Shower situation was not ideal. Also had a shower in our room but the drainage system didn't work well so bathroom would always flood. Also, hostel was filled with many noisy school groups (young teenagers) so it wasn't always as relaxing as it should have been.

Liked: The staff were amazing. Very helpful and had a great attitude. Extremely clean and lots of space. Excellent breakfast! Very convenient. And an excellent kebap shop just outside the hostel!

Disliked: Nothing! (The elevator up to the 3rd floor where the hostel check in desk is a bit scary at first. That's all)

Liked: Good location. Nice staff. Good facilities.

Disliked: Not enough hot water. The first room didn't have hot water at all. But we got a new room, where it was a bit better. Too small towels. The free internet didn't work in the rooms but only in the lobby.

Liked: wonderful breakfast, all facilities as other people have described, literally on top of the metro station. and the kebab and curry just downatairs is all you ever want to eat!!

Disliked: i was in a 10-person dorm but we had 13 in our room at one point and some people had to sleep on the floor. rather inconvenient and unfair to the rest of us.

Liked: 1. We were offer 4-bed room. although we heave booked a place in 10-bed room :) 2. Excellent breakfasts 3. Very good location - near the U-Bahn station and close to the center

Disliked: 1. It works more like a hotel, not hostel so rooms are separated and there is no hostel-like atmosphere, but it may be seen as an advantage.

Liked: Almost everything! I would definately recommend this hostel. The room was clean and modern, the breakfast was a nice surprise of good varieties considering it was free, and the location is great! It's really easy to find and RIGHT beside the subway station so getting around the city was not a problem. The staff were EXTREMELY nice and very helpful. When my friends and I didn't know where to find a certain bar or city attraction the check-in staff always looked it up for us.

Disliked: The only thing I disliked was that our bathroom shower would turn into a small pool 5 minutes into showering. Considering we shared that shower with other travelers that we didn't know, I wasn't about to stick my hand in there to clean it out. It would have been nice for the cleaning staff to change the garbages and check the shower every other day. BUT considering everything else was amazing, the shower clog was not a big deal :).

Liked: The common area was nice. The inclusive breakfast really saves money and is good. Receptionist was very helpful.

Disliked: The room was congested, with 3 of us living in a 6-beds room. Towel size was a napkin size and shower water was not very hot. The check-out time was not like the ckeck-in time. Had to wait to get the room and had to leave sooner than we thought.
