The neighbourhood was ok and access to public transport easy. Comfortable beds were the only good thing about the room. Next door cafe- where the breakfast was served- was a stylish one. staff was kind and tried to be helpful
There is no real window and wall in the room!! Only a small opening to the building's interior and so called 'walls' slightly thicker than paper! All the noise in the room due to noisy surroundings.
In the second day, Pia (excelent) give us the booked bedroom and help us with everything).
Arrival confused. The bedroom booked was occupied, so they gives a cheaper (and worse) option, without acoustic insulation (I needed tampons in the ear for sleep...). They have problems for provide bath towels.
Quiet. I was the only guest in a female dorm. Practically a hotel for the price of a hostel
They didn't know I was coming. Seemed to be confusion from booking.
Great location, close to downtown area and great places to eat. Breakfast at the cafe next door was simple but nice.
Showers were cold most of the time.
