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 �

Liked: Very clean, secure and easy to find.. Located very close to an SBahn stop.

Disliked: You are only allowed to use the WIFI between certain hours. Its a little bit too far out of the central city for me, maybe 30/40 mins walk.

Liked: It was clean.

Disliked: The guy who ran it was pushy and inappropriate. He came into our room and sat on girls bed while she was in it and he was just weird and somewhat handsy with the women.

Liked: clean

Disliked: This place is awful. Hostel is closed during the day, so if you arrive before 3pm you'll have to sit outside the building with your luggage. If you're sick or need to stay in bed during a multi-day stay, you'll be kicked out. Rooms are small, no towels given, and wifi is cut off during the night and morning. Very expensive for crappy service and amenities.The owner will also try scaring you into paying extra for a locker, making comments about how people will try to steal your stuff. Location is also bad, very far from anything good.

Liked: - location, easy to reach from central station by bus (however cost you an extra couple of euros compared to hostel at the station)- the host seems like a nice guy, willing to give directions- bathroom was clean

Disliked: - It was very noisy (caused by the host & his friends hanging out in the kitchen) until 1am- the beds are not good and did not smell like they'd been cleaned- they charge you extra for paying with credit card- you cannot drop your garbage (food items) anywhere in the hostel, so you have to go outside to dump it at the busstation- you cannot charge certain electronics, as it is forbidden in the hostel - got in trouble for charging a notebook- i did not feel safe, as doors cannot be locked
