Liked: Most of the staff is friendly and welcoming and the room was clean. We were staying at the ground floor so we did not have to use the elevator , though in front of our door was most of the time people waiting for the elevator. The breakfast costs 5 euro if you book it before 11 pm and was pretty much ok. Tram station right next to the hotel , bus station close too.

Disliked: There was a guy in the staff that was having an arrogant look. He did not talk to any of us, though we heard him shouting at a collegue of him because there were too many people taking breakfast in the same time - like his collegue was having any fault for that.

Liked: by far the best hostel i stayed at. upon arriving we were unsure of what our room would look like, but the rooms were very nice and newly renovated. It was more of a hotel than a hostel to be honest. they offered a decent breakfast, and the location was close to a lot of sites

Liked: Friendly and helpful customer service (receptionist). For the room, it is clean and there is cleaning service everyday.

Disliked: However, the facilities and beddings may be old and not clean looking. The lift capacity is small and need to wait quite a long time.

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.
