Liked: I read quite a few bad reviews about this place, and honestly have no idea why anyone was complaining. The hostel is in an ideal location (minutes from the train station, and right in the red light district). The staff was extremely friendly, the rooms were nice and clean, the bathroom was way better than I expected, and cheap drinks at the bar (especially during happy hour). It was my first stay in a hostel, and I was very happy with my choice!

Disliked: No complaints at all, really enjoyed my stay.

Liked: while I was there someone got about 200$ stolen from a backpack, they were accusing one of the cleaning guys. We din't have any problems, maybe because we where very carefull with our stuff and allways caried the money with us. I don't think is the most secure place but for the money is great.

Disliked: The place is nice for the price, its right in the red light district.wi

Liked: The staff were brilliant, really friendly and helpful. Showed us the best places to go gave out maps, look after all your valuables behind the counter etc. Everything is very high quality and so a really good place to stay. Location was really good in terms of being able to walk to everywhere and didn't need any public transport.

Disliked: Location probably wasn't the best safety wise as its borderline red light district with coffee shops opposite. When coming back from nights out at 3am there would be quite a lot of junkies to walk past but we never had any actual problems and it is well lit/fairly busy. Also there's only one key per room so you have to rely on other people waking up when you knock to let you in!

Liked: Nothing.... One staff member was nice and helpful - she warned us about the poor security of their hostel... !

Disliked: The rooms were very stuffy... because 20+ people should NOT sleep in such a small space! Other travelers ate their breakfast in their bunk beds, levaing a mess around their beds... making it difficult to get around the room... Neighborhood is quiet during the day, but noisy throughout the night... If you want to sleep - do not go to this hostel... it is in the middle of the red light district.... go there for the sex=servers, live sex shows and "coffee shops"...
