4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Very clean and well-maintained facility. The staff was quite helpful and welcoming as well. The only downside I’d say is it lacked common areas with only one and there was no hostel events/activities ongoing either. If you’re not looking to meet people but just want a good space to stay, I’d recommend. If you’re looking for a more communal type hostel I’d look elsewhere

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Your stay would probably be better than mine; my room's AC was broken and despite the staff's assurances they they rebooted it the AC remained broken through my entire stay, and from what my roomnates said it had been broken for days before I even arrived. Made it too hot to remain in the room or get a good night's sleep. Other than that rather large problem the stay was good, it's reasonably close to the metro and the staff were there 24/7 to answer questions.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family, Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
We did not like the expensive luggage lockers, extra €5 euro charge for each towel (4 of us stayed in room with private bathroom), no available boiling water for tea (would have had to pay at the restaurant there as if I was buying a tea for over €2). Staff was friendly, place was clean, but quite expensive for a hostel stay. Thanks.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I liked the hostel. It was clean & served it's purpose. It is better suited for group travel as it can be a bit impersonal
