Liked: Location is really good. I stayed in 10 persons room and room has quite space between beds. There is a big lcd tv although noone turned it on because almost always someone sleeping, the hostel is for sleeping for sure :) bathroom was inside of room and loo was seperate and inside room with a mirror and foam soap so it was ok. Although beds are small it was comfortable.

Disliked: I was staying at second floor, there was wifi problem so there is no wifi. Bathroom was stinking and too dirty. Stairs were horrifying, there was no wifi and there is no space in hostel to sit and use the internet. Sheets were dirty.

Liked: NOTHING, this is the hostel from hell! Do not stay here!!!

Disliked: This was the hostel from hell. We were charged for our room upon arrival, then told our room doesn't actually have a functioning lock on the door. That it had been broken and would be fixed soon. Our creepy roommates told us that it had been broken already for nearly two days, and that they had also seen rats in the room. We waited until evening when STILL nothing had been done about the lock, at which point we left. The staff was unhelpful and rude as we tried to explain why this was a problem for us. They claim to have a bag room--they don't. It's a sketchy hallway that people can walk through, and some guy who didn't speak english was "watching" the bags. They advertise as having a lounge--they don't. They advertise as having a kitchen--they don't. They also claim to have lockers in the rooms, which is true, except that not a single one in our room actually locked.

Liked: It is located right in the downtown area near Dam Square and other landmarks.

Disliked: Property was not clean. The washroom did not have a proper shower; the wasn't separate stations for the toilet and the shower, which was unsanitary. There also isn't any privacy for changing clothes. Since the washroom floor is always wet , its hard to keep your clothes dry.
