I stayed in 6 hostels during my last Europe trip and this one is at the top of my list. It's got everything you need. Great kitchen, laundry, lounge with a tv and nice Mac computers, an awesome courtyard (they had live music one night I was there), a cafe attached where you can get a nice breakfast, or a drink any time. The atmosphere was so great for meeting people and the other guests were friendly. As a solo traveler, that is the single most important feature to me. I had a blast with everyone there. Every staff member was nice and courteous. The guy who took us out on a bike tour was really cool. As far as rooms, I stayed in an a 6 bed mixed. The bed was very comfortable. One of my favorite features of the room was that there was a lot of air moving thru it/well ventilated. If you've stayed in a small room with 5 or 6 other sleeping people and it's hot and stuffy, then you know how the smell can be unpleasant. Not an issue at this hostel. Security throughout the hostel is good. Everything is done by code which I like much better than keeping track of a key. Rooms have adequate lockers. The location could not be any better. Right in the middle of everything and so close to the train. Great place to set off from and explore the city. I literally can't think of a single complaint. Overall, A+
