Amanda Clark thinks…

"We stayed in a private room in the apartments down the road. It was so quiet and clean. Great kitchen facilities and very adequate breakfast. Loved staying in this apartment."

10 October 2011 Brian would recommend this property

Liked: They actually serve you a nice breakfast in the morning. It's not free but, for 2 euro, it's pretty good: fresh bread toasted with nice jams, muffins, cold juice and hot brewed coffee. The common rooms are big with cushy furniture and small balconies with tables. The kitchen was great with lots of community food leftovers. Nice lockers. Friendly, competent and accommodating staff

Disliked: Can't think of any deal-breaking problems. It was a little stuffy in the rooms at night. But the beds are comfortable, and I stayed in two rooms, and neither one squeaked.

Disliked: The musty smell on the stairway. The leaky roof that dripped on me when it rained- yuck!. The staff had to place buckets and towels along the stairs. Slight health and safety risk!

Liked: The front desk lady was extremely helpful and nice. Everyone at the hostel was very smiley and kind. The location is amazinggggg, we could make frequent stops a the hostel to drop things off/pick things up or use the bathroom.

Disliked: the showers are a little weird, they are on a push timer and so you have to keep pushing the button, every minute or so, to keep the hot water going it was a little obnoxious.

Liked: Great location, the hostel is not too big but it has common areas so it's really easy to meet people. The hostel is clean and each bed has a locker. The staff were really helpful and friendly, and the internet was cheap and fast.

Disliked: They closed the kitchen and common areas around 11 at night, bit annoying if you're prepping for a night out but you can go downstairs and use the tables there.

Liked: Everything, minus some people staying there.

Disliked: Everything was good except there were a bunch of students staying there who weren't actually traveling. Very unfriendly, especially to those who are looking for a good time. But, you'll probably have better luck. Everything else was WONDERFUL.
