Liked: Bed very comfortable. Room, bedclothes and bathroom very clean. Great powerful shower. Socket next to each bed.

Disliked: One bathroom per dorm is awkward. If someone is showering for example, no one can use the toilet. Separate bathrooms / showers would probably be more effective. Otherwise all was fine.

Liked: The location is perfect very close to all the main touristic places. It compares to 03 stars hotel with a hostel price. Very clean and comfortable beds and towels, as well as excellent hot shower. The breakfast cost 5 euros but it is worth it, with fresh coffee and variety of juices and fresh bread, croissant and good quality cold meat. The staff is very helpful and they offer all information even without you asking for it.

Liked: Great location, quiet neighbourhood

Disliked: The beds (I stayed in a private room) are terrible. Half of the night you try not to fall down because they're so soft you think you're gonna slide down, and the other half you turn on the lights by mistake because the switches are positions so poorly by the bed.

Liked: Good location. It was nice to stay somewhere not in the party centre, but close enough to walk to it

Disliked: The bathroom in the dorm didn't seem to have a vent, which made it quite humid and wet after anyone showered.

Liked: Very clean and modern, good location, close to museums, not very noisy, ensuite rooms,

Disliked: Staff a bit unfriendly, the system made a mistake on arrival and the lady on reception was insistent that the more than doubling of our stay price was due to the conversion rate. It took quite a lot of refusal to pay before they looked into it again and the correct price was calculated.

Liked: We stayes in 8 persons low budget personal room, there was cleen sheets and towels, handwash soap, hair and body shampoo, hairdryer, personal safes, the room was well heated so we slept with window opened, there is tv that i don't remember we whatched, and wifi that for a moment had better and for the moment worse signal - but it worked for us. Staff was quite helpful, in the reception room there are two computers that you can use whenever you want, city centre is in walking distance, and breakfast that you can have for 5 euros was great. Also every bed has his own power port and lamp. Hostel is in quiet and safe area, and the bathroom is nice :)

Disliked: there could be somekind hangers for towels so you dont have to hang them on all over the beds if you want to reuse them, and an extra toilet on the floor. sorry for my english :) it was an nice and cozy stay :)

Liked: The facilities was perfect. The room was nicely designed. Very modern. You can keep your bags for free.

Disliked: There are no kitchens if you're expecting a hostel accomodation. The toilet reeks the smell of piss. No ventilation in the toilets, a very wet floor. Smells aweful.
