People here are great, place is nice. We stayed in the king sized room and it was cozy and comfortable. There wasn't too much noise even though the main road is right below. The kitchen and common room are pretty nice as well.

The 4 bed female ensuite room is spacious, clean and well aired, with all necessary facilities and storage space. The receptionist lady (I forgot to get her name) was very helpful. The hostel is close to a Lebanese restaurant that makes amazing doughnut-shape falafels, Basic

When we first arrived, we didn't feel welcome showing up, and multiple workers made us feel as though we are an inconvenience. There are a lot of doors to go through making it slow and isolated. There is a door to outside, a door to the cafe, a door for each floor entrance,

The place is bit far from the city centre, however it is located next to u-Bahn which is good. A bar located within the property is nice and generally not that loud. Be careful when arriving in odd hours as they have dedicated check-in timings. They charge you key security

"no lift, so travelers with heavy luggage should ask for a room on 1st or 2nd floor"
"I slept in the dorm of 6 with a friend of mine and another friend had to sleep in the dorm of 4.. al fine, a dorm like it should be.."
"The room number 1 (6 beds) is very noisy (loads of sounds coming from the Venloer Straße. But it's quite nice and spacy. It has one bed which is bigger than the other ones. The room shares a toilet and two showers with one other room. The room number 6 (4 beds) is tiny and quiet."
"I was on the 1st floor (actually it is 2nd - after the ground, cafe). All rooms are fine. In the corner rooms there is a good street view."
US$23 - US$82 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
