            Great location and nice staff”

            Great location in the city close to town hall and museum station. A smaller hostel so you get to know the staff and guests more creating a family environment. Free dinner on one night and free tea and coffee. There is an option to party but also non-alcohol social activities. Sometimes it can smell a little bit and the rooms can get hot in the summer but that is the only downside.

            Fantastic and friendly environment ”

            Stayed here for over a week as I enjoyed it so much. The staff are super friendly and always make an effort to create a family environment. The free family dinner on Thursdays and free pancakes on Sundays are great for travellers and a nice way to meet people. A pub crawl is also an option. There is also self service laundry, an iron, hairdryer, straighteners and curlers which is a nice touch.

            Very noisy party music or people chatting loudly almost everyday even after midnight”

            The place can get very dirty as day goes - There's no clothes for tenants to wipe the benches after meals even if they want to clean up their messes. Stuffed room even with fan on 24/7 and windows open. One blond receptionist was super kind while one staff member ?receptionist was a bit rough (It was not my fault that I didn't receive a towel on arrival why blamed me for that/and questioning as if I was lying). Pro: Location is great, 2 mins walk to bus and train station.
