This hostel is overpriced and got very low comfort. You will be better of booking a room at a castle just a few km outside the city, or stay in guesthouse with friendly and nice atomosphere. Why? Keep reading.
Beds - you migth be more comfy sleeping on the floor. The matresses was worn out and very, very thin. In the bunk bed over my head I felt asleep looking at used chewing gum sticked to the bed.
Noise - I know the hostel is situated in the city center, but the noise from cars and buses never stops.
Price - If the price had been reasonable I wouldn`t complained, but this is a very expensive hostel. Remember that you have to pay for everything, like wi-fi, left luggage etc.
Staff - the staff had poor knowledge about parkingrules, directions etc.
Atmosphere - if you enjoy looking at teenagers staring at their smartphones this is the place for you.
