Liked: Everything looked pretty new, especially the card keys. Right across the street from the Hauptbahnhof.

Disliked: Shower bit small. Staffs weren't so friendly & welcoming in the evening when I arrived, but I guess you can't help that when it's busy.

Liked: It's perfect located and clean. The building looks brand new and the beds are very comfortable! Good cakes at a reasonable price.

Disliked: No safe lockers to leave your luggage with valuable belongings after check out. No common area to relax or read in the afternoon or evenings, cause the loud music from the bar it's heard everywhere. Extra small toilets in the rooms and you can hear everything from the rooms.

Liked: The bar and the music in the front entrance are great and create a good atmosphere. The location is central next to the main train station, which is very convenient. There is enough space to move around in the hostel, I stayed in a 6-bed room, the size of the room was average but it had large big lockers, bed lights and plugins.

Disliked: I didn't like the toilet in the room, too small, couldn't use the sink properly, walls are probably made of cardboard. Fortunately there were toilets outside in the corridor.

Liked: Very friendly staff, great location (and easy to find, it is really next to the station). I booked a 6 bed dorm, but stayed in a 4 bed-dorm for the same price - just as some of my roommates. Everything looks new and clean.

Disliked: Prices of drinks in hostel bar are quite high, I think it's cheaper to drink in most local bars. Not hostel-like. But that is just a minor detail, everything else in this hostel was great.

Liked: The hostel had a fantastic location and the private rooms were very similar to a good standard hotel. i was pleasantly surprised! I particularly liked the security doors needed to gain access to upstairs and private rooms. I felt very secure. I also liked the freedom to control the temperature in the room. Excellent stay, and I will most definitely use the chain again.

Disliked: Would have preferred a desk chair and not a stool for back support.

Liked: Good facilities, and safe and secure.

Disliked: The number of big groups travelling together from the country where the hostel is based in, personally a group of 4-5 individuals who are travelling together in their own country should be asked to buy a 6 bed dorm for themselves, because they tend to act like they own the dorm anyway! Although this was an issue certainly not unique to this hostel, it must be said.

Liked: Amazing location right in front of the manin train station. Very modern, cool areas to chill out. Sandeman's Free tour and pubcrawls start from the lobby of the hotel. Not charging a deposit for the card was a nice touch.

Disliked: Extremly small bathroom. 2 small capsules of only 1m wide one for the shower and one for the toilet. It felt a bit inhuman. I don't think I like the mass produced feeling of this kind of big chain hostels. They are a nice place to crush but have nothing to do with the place I'm visiting, it feels like the McDonalds of the hostel industry.

Liked: Great overall. It feels new and clean. The lounge area and the bar are great, HUGE brand new computers to use. Fast wifi. Comfy beds. Great deal for the price.

Disliked: The bathrooms in the dorms are pretty horrible. They are WAY to small. Plus, being in the room, they are a bit noisy. It was difficult for me, because to blow dry my hair I had to go into the hallway so as not to wake fellow dormmates. Would have preferred a central bathroom somewhere. Also, no kitchen or fridge.

21 November 2013 Vince would recommend this property

Liked: Great location (main railway and bus station, underground line 1 within a few minutes), spacious and user-friendly community areas (chill-out zone, bar with live-music and drink discounts, etc.), very clean rooms, It is rather like a hotel, especiallly if you pay for a single/double room. Great price/value ratio. The wifi is accessible on every floor, is fast and can be accessed easily. Travel shop, bar and café. Despite central locations rooms are not noisy.

Disliked: Can happen that some staff members are a bit rude. Shared rooms can be crowded.
