Positive Reviews

Well-equipped kitchens great for those on a budget

The hostel has two kitchens providing you with all that is needed for cooking your own meals on your trip A local supermarket is close by meaning that you can cut down a great deal on dining out during your trip to the city.

Clean and comfortable throughout

Budget accommodation is quite often regarded as less than comfortable, but this hostel takes pride in keeping the entire building clean and in good condition The beds are comfy, and the living room is a perfect place to relax and get to know the other guests.

Great location with everything nearby

Everything you could need is not too far from this hostel A post office, restaurants, bars, cafés, a supermarket and various other shops are all within walking distance, and the train station gets you right into the city in only ten minutes.

Negative Reviews

Not as good value as you might expect

Yes, it is budget accommodation but for the price you pay you may expect a little more If there are events on in the area, the hostel may increase their nightly rates making it poor value for money.

Poor service let the side down

The hostel is acceptable and as clean as you’d expect for shared accommodation, but the staff are not as professional as they should be They are not as helpful as the staff in other hotels and don’t actually make you feel very welcome.

Looks worse than it does on the website

The rooms are not in as good a condition as you might think considering how nice they look in the online photos Everything in the hostel is budget furniture and so doesn’t last too long You’ll probably notice a few squeaky chairs or shaky beds during your stay.
