    The hostel was really nice and clean and the staff really kind. Very close to the bus station and the centre. They offer breakfast and lunch for 4 and 5,50€. The quality of the lunch was higher than expected. Also they have big common space where you can order something to drink or relax. Definitely would stay there again!!

    Cool hostel. Easy to meet people. Nice to be in single beds rather than bunks (even if it was very squishy). Good location to the train station (5 minutes) and town (15/20 minutes)

    Few questionable people at the end of the street from the hostel but never had any trouble with them. 12 bed dorm was very squishy. Could reach out and touch the next person.

    Concept, design, cleanliness

    Nothing in particular. Common areas could have been comfier (ie couches, more open space). Room could have done with a sink/basin

    This is one of the best hostels I have visited. It's an old prison beautifully renovated and refurbished. I stayed in a shared room with 12 beds. The location is good, being close to train and bus stations and not far from the city center. Everything is kept very clean including the shared bathrooms/toilets. Beds are very comfortable. The WiFi is very good. From Monday to Friday the hostel's restaurant offers lunch 11am-3pm, the food is excellent and not at all expensive. Every morning a rich buffet breakfast is available. The staff are nice and helpful. Definitely recommended.

    Perhaps the beds in the 12-bed room where I stayed, are a little too close to each other, I'd turn that room into an 8-bed room.
