While the staff and owners here seemed to be doing their best to provide a decent stay, they failed. First of all, I'll give the owners credit for trying to keep drugs out of the hostel, so far as telling people to leave if they were caught smoking inside and frequently telling people "This is a hostel, not a coffee shop". I definitely appreciate this and understand that the main problem were the idiot druggies who couldn't handle being un-stoned for 5 minutes out of the day. However, it is hard to sleep when the guy across from you is smoking hashish at 3 in the morning and not being able to have any staff respond to it.
The location of the hostel is good, being next to several of the museums and near a tram line, and I got a good price for a dorm room so it was a decent deal, but it was somewhat shabby and rundown. Breakfast was your standard hostel breakfast of toast and a couple eggs.
Overall, great staff, shabby building and beds, but all brought down by the inability to control drug use within the rooms.
