Stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend and we couldn't have been happier with the location. It's five minutes' walk from the main train station and 2 minutes' walk from a tram stop which was great because the hostel gave us free public transport cards! The receptionist was cheerful and helpful and the hostel had a laundry room which was pretty useful since we'd been interrailing and were running out of clean clothes. When we first arrived at the hostel we were told our room would definitely be ready in half an hour but if we went to check it would maybe be ready now. So we climbed the stairs to the first floor and were met by a cleaner and a man who appeared to be cleaning manager or something. The maid told us our room was ready but the (slightly eccentric) man told us angrily and extremely rudely that the room would be ready when he said it was ready. He definitely gave off control freak vibes and made us feel very very uncomfortable. Every other staff member seemed really nice though. The weather was scorching and the room had no air conditioning so I didn't sleep very well and to top it all off construction workers began doing something extremely noisy in the street at 6:30am both mornings! Not strictly the hostel's fault but it seriously affected the quality of our stay. The showers and toilet facilities were pretty average and reasonably clean. I'd recommend the hostel to anybody looking to save a little money but I'd maybe suggest staying here at a time of year when it's not so warm... Really could not fault the location but they could do with installing some air con.
