Disliked: Drunk receptionist forced us to pay next night's fee because we arrived half an hour later due to a delay on behalf of Deutsche Bahn. No understanding at all on his part. Customer treatment is not valued at this hostel.

Liked: Location was really good one when you want to go to messe. Nightclubs and stuff like that are little bit far away. You can also get coffee and drinks like beer from reception with money, thought all beverages were little bit expensive when you compare to prices what store in downstais have. Ladies in the reception were really nice.

Disliked: The owner who works also in reception is way too offensive with his humour and how he act, so prepare for really wierd humour which is endless. Also you have to remember that you cant bring any food or drinks to inside from like pizzerias or stores.

Liked: It's clean and organized, the travellers are sympathetic.

Disliked: Everything is paid for (towels, lockers, breakfast - and what really surprised me: luggage storaging on your last day, just for a couple of hours!). The owners are nasty (the guy was kinda drunk once), they don't speak english well enough... the WiFi is limited to one device per person, and it ends when you check out. They regulate everything!I do not pretend to come back there, and I strongly recommend you to close this tab and search for another hostel.

Liked: Literally right across the street from the main train station, a couple blocks from the financial district and the older part of town. Free breakfast and dinner! Fast wifi in the lounge. Everything was very clean :)

Disliked: The area outside is ugly because it is right on the red light district. Nothing too crazy though, it's not a reason not to stay here. This was my second time and I would definitely come again �
