Everything just felt perfect to me! Being someone who is shy, it still didn't take more than 5 minutes to be involved with people hanging out at the reception area. I was given quick introductory tour by the reception staff member and it all just seems so cosy and lovely. Unfortunately I only had prepared to spend the night there,... More

This is a good fun party hostel. We got a fee drink when we arrived, the staff cooked lovely hostel dinner. Kitchen was well equipped for self catering. Films showing in the evening. And the staff went above and beyond when we left something behind and they willingly posted it back to the UK for us. Thank you so much!!!

Very nice hostel close to the city center and bar/restaurants. It was very clean and cozy. Highly suggested for young people. Only one drawback: the room was quite cold and the heating system was not working properly.

If your a 'party person' then this is certainly the place for you. The under 40's policy is flexible as long as you know the score. Excellent Toilet and Shower rooms.

Great atmosphere and helpful staff. Located just outside of the Old Town but still pretty close. Good place to meet other people and party. There are drinking games every night. Gets much better on weekends.
