Liked: One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at - definitely deserves its 5-star rating. Clean & comfortable ensuite, safe hostel with helpful 24h reception (anything we asked, they found out for us). Very good breakfast for a bit of extra. We found the location (about 15 minutes away from the train station) good.

Disliked: If breakfast was included in the price, this would be the best hostel ever.
