Liked: Good location in red light district, short walk from the train station and to major attractions, clean room

Disliked: Highly not recommended if you will arrive early (earlier than 9am) because their "24 hours reception" actually means a guy at the bar who couldn't care less about you. I totally understand that rooms are usually ready in the afternoon, so in most hostels they will let you leave your bags, fresh up / rest in common area when arrive early. But what I got from the bar guy when I arrived at 7am was "I open the door to let the air in" (not to have me walk in) and that I have to come back at 9am to leave my bags so I ended up walking around town with all my luggage. Although I understand the concept of working hours, kicking someone out when you have a vast empty space...and it said a lot about how helpful this place gonna be!

Liked: Clean place. But slightly old. No elevator and steps were quite steep. Hostel wa slocated directly above a bar. Wifi was really weak in the common area and disconnected a number of times.

Disliked: Only stay if you are curious about the red light district. The hostel was relatively safe but it was located at the edge of the rowdy area and weed smoke can be smell frequently.

Liked: I like that the staff were always around to greet you, remembered your face, the hotel bar was lively in the day and evening which made it feel lively. It was very secure and felt safe to leave my belongings in the building whilst I was out all day.

Disliked: The wifi wasn't strong enough throughout the building and after speaking to other hostel visitors they had the same trouble.

Liked: The location is very good. All the others things are not good at all. None facilities, bad WiFi. Forget WiFi in the rooms. Ver bad staff

Disliked: As I said before, most of it didn't liked me. Just the location, that is good, but that makes the place very noisy. Dirty, no place to relax except for the huge sports bar downstairs.

11 April 2015

Liked: That it is located on top of a bar

Disliked: MANY things. Staff is pretty unfriendly and does not inform you of what they offer/rules. You just learn as you go. Rooms are pretty basic. If people in your room take up the lockers then you're forced to use ones in the hallway. There are only 2 plugs in each room and they are located on one wall, so dont bank on charging anything unless you luck out with the 1 bed next to BOTH PLUGS. Also, the bar has wifi but the rooms do not. Would not recommend anyone staying here because the prices of the rooms are too high for what they offer.

Liked: Great location.

Disliked: There are no cooking facilities, and the only social space is the bar downstairs which you can't eat your own food in so that made eating quite expensive. The rooms get extremely hot at night particularly on the top bunks. Lack of powerpoints in the hostel as well.

Liked: Just 10 mins from the station very easy to find and excellent location direct in the Red Light District. We stayed in a private 5 bed dorm with shower and toilet, the room was quite large and clean with 5 single beds. The bar and food was excellent and you get a discount on the food if you stay there. Great if staying in large groups of friends and want to be close to the centre.

Disliked: The bar staff were really friendly but the women who were running the hostel didn't seem very happy and welcoming .

Liked: Grateful for the shower. Much better than most of the hostels I've been.

Disliked: Room was a bit dusty under the beds, and I don't believe the shower/toilet was cleaned in the four nights I was there. Sharing it with 5 other people, it needed it.
