Liked: - the kitchen was large enough for all the guest. - shower and toilets very clean. and remember to clean them. - centrally located, with two-theree stops from the centre. - Supermarket are really close as Lidl, to buy cheese, beer, and other food.

Disliked: - Breakfast price - bed sheets to rent - unfortunately there is no bar inside the hostels in order to drink something with other guests

Liked: I stayed here for 2 days in dormitory and I liked it. Room, kitchen and toilet were all clean and quiet.

Disliked: I had to pay for linen but I was already informed before I got here so that's OK. But hairdryer is in the room and it's fixed on the wall so you can't take it to toilet. I couldn't use it because I didn't want to disturb with noise others sleeping.

Liked: The hostel itself was perfectly adequate for my needs and had all one would expect of a hostel, plus the nice surprise of free internet access! (if a little unreliable) However it was the good-natured, knowledgeable, helpful and incredibly language-skilled staff who really gave the place its smile factor. Richly deserved!

Disliked: Only slight gripe was the limited space in the bunkrooms, especially for travellers.. good use of space though for what they had, and more space available in lockers or luggage rooms elsewhere in the hostel. It is unfair to complain if I went for the cheapest room available!

Liked: Room was clean and quiet, had a hotel-like character. Also all the common spaces were really tidy.

Disliked: It was a work trip and I also needed to work in the evening, so I stayed in a single room. Unfortunately WiFi didn't work in the rooms, and I had to sit at the guest kitchen, which wasn't so quiet space to work. Quite expensive breakfast for a hostel, although props for ecological food.
