Liked: comfy, excellent value for money, good location in front of a tram stop and new metro line 4 , a fridge and a small kitchen which even includes a sandwich maker. This is a nice, small, quiet hostel. which I would definitely recommend to anyone not looking for a big, party hostel. In any case, there is no curfew or anything so if you do want to go out then there's no problem, just don't expect to go on a pub crawl with the hostel

Disliked: Helen left no negative feedback.

Liked: It is cheap, honest and extremely helpful staff 24/7 Enormous offer of snacks, restaurants and bars just outside Easy to get to the city by tram or on foot All the rooms have a decorative theme Tea and coffee available for free

Disliked: Only 2 toilets and 2 showers, but the hostel only has 5 or 6 rooms, so this was never an issue Facilities are limited (for example no breakfast possible), but everything you need is 5 steps away Pretty hard to find the first time, no big sign on the building The beds were a bit hard (thin mattresses?), but once we lied down, they did prove to be extremely comfortable...

Liked: It's clean. Prices are low. Staff are mostly friendly. The dorms are spacious, well-lit, very pleasant -no bunkbeds! Good showers. Good wifi.

Disliked: No common room. Tiny, tiny kitchen. And there is not a single table where you can sit down to eat. These are the three weak points of the hostel.

Liked: A hostel gem! It truly is a cozy little hostel with easily the friendliest staff of any hostel we have stayed. You really couldn't ask for a more comfortable, clean, quiet hostel and the location is outstanding.

Disliked: In no way a negativ, but if you are looking for a 'party' hostel then this is not the place to stay.
