01 September 2009 Lauren would recommend this property

Liked: If your looking for a mad party time then this is the place to stay. Smack bang in the centre of the red district with one of the best coffee shops right around the corner. (The GreenHouse - a must)The themed rooms aren't all they say there are.....just a painted door and a feature wall really.We had read that the noise and heat was a huge issue for this place however we were really luck where our room was upstairs and at the back of the building with 2 massive windows (The Clockwork room)Just your basic average hostel really, we had fun!

31 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It is a very centric place, in the middle of the red district. Theres plenty of restaurants and bars so it is quite noisy during the night (not recommended if you are looking for some rest). The rooms were very very hot so the windows had to stay open all night. Clean bed sheets and towels every day but they didn't clean the bathroom... Breakfast was great!!

Andrew Rabenstein

21 August 2009 Andrew would recommend this property

Liked: Everyone was reall fun and wanted to go out with other people, which was great because I was there by myself. Our room had 6 beds and a private, cleaned bathroom. The breakfasts were really good (it was a buffet of sliced meats and cheeses and toast with butter and jam). I arrived at the hostel early and they had no problem storing my luggage until check-in time. I would highly recommend this hostel.

Liked: The themed rooms were a really cool idea, everything was clean, even the shared showers the only issue i had was that one locker key seemed to open all the lockers in our room, not exactly the safest place to put your passport.

Liked: i would recommend this hostel to people travelling in groups. if youre travelling alone then i think its pretty hard to meet people here. as someone else said, its more like a hotel with dorms. still, its a good hostel, it seems to be cleaned every day, there are lockers by the bed that are free to use (10 euro deposit) , very good breakfast with meat, cheese, eggs, cereal, bread, coffee and orange juice . its also right slap bang in the red light district and very hot in the rooms with no a/c so the window is wide open all night and it can be very noisy, but i kinda liked that. dont be put off by it being in the red light district as its a safe area and not at all seedy as i imagined it would be, just very touristy.
