4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
No frills, no fuss Hostel
This is a no frills, no fuss Hostel right in the centre of the downtown area. It's still quiet even during a concert, partly because there are no windows. The shared facilities (showers, kitchen and wc) are located in the centre with the rooms around the edges. So other guests could be a problem, but we had no such issues. Parking is an issue, it's more suitable for those travelling with public transport

Business traveller, Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Great destination for introverts. Check-in is automated, and all rooms are private and secure. Kitchen facilities are small and disappointingly basic. Facility is impeccably clean and well kept, reasonable priced, and smack in the middle of the downtown hub.
