Liked: Great location in a quiet part of old town, very close to main tourist attractions. Nice neighbourhood, full of historic buildings. Wifi works in the rooms :-) Perfect for families. It's actually more of a B&B with dormitories. Added bonus: hostel pub/restaurant, which serves delicious meals and a wide selection of local beers. Average prices.

Disliked: Not a serious drawback, but the hostel has a very narrow and steep staircase (normal for an old house like that). Might be difficult to go upstairs with a heavy/oversized baggage.

Liked: as reported by other travellers , they do provide a good breakfast , rather more like a hotel buffet.

Disliked: the dorm rooms, whice are more like a hostel annex to the main guest rooms which are part of the hotel , have very thin foam mattresses , which make simply sleeping rather difficult, unless your dead tired. there are also no sound proffing anywhere for the dorm rooms, the doors are thin and the sounds from the downstairs hall, reception, breakfast room and basement pub all directly enter the dorm rooms. if theres somthing going on , you'll hear it , so take ear plugs.

Liked: Nice and cosy atmosphere since it's an old house. Nice view. Central location. Friendly and helpful staff.

Disliked: Lived on 5th floor which had a very nice view but was hard to reach - due to the fact that there are steep wooden stairs and we had a huge and heavy suitcase. We had to leave before breakfast time and there was not a possibility to get a lunch box.

Liked: The hostel is located in an interesting old house. The breakfast was particularly good for a hostel. The bar space, particularly outside was pleasant. We were allowed to change our booking quite late on, and the staff were helpful and efficient with this.

Disliked: No particular 'hostel type' community, it felt more like a hotel. We were told we could drink the tap water and there was no where to fill up water bottles e.g a kitchenette.

Liked: Good location and bar plus helpful staff . Not a bad breakfast either for the money. I'd stay there with a group again.

Disliked: went during the euros so not great value for money but everyone was at least doubling their prices for that so can't really complain. Only complaint from our group was that the shower head holders need fixing, but obviously not a major drawback and it was nice and powerful at least.

Disliked: There didn't seem to be any secure storage lockers. I had dorm to myself so it didn't bother me much but if there were other people there I'd have asked the staff if they had any. Only let down was the bathroom which wasn't as tastefully decorated but was clean.

Liked: Super friendly staff. The were very helpful and knowledgeable.

Disliked: The construction was very loud and woke us up. The good news is that this is probably temporary. I wasn't a fan of the beds. There is a slight rise in the middle that wasn't too nice on the back. Also, I would have liked nicer showers. The shower head holder seemed to have been broken on 2 of the 3 showers.
