Overall this hostel had the potential to be perfect.
Our hiccups were that we had specifically asked for a quiet room and were told the apartments were quiet so we paid extra and booked one of those (only £56 so still amazing price for the great facilities) however our apartment was over a bar (not belonging to the hostel) and although you couldn't hear anything from the bar the noise from the street with drunk customers leaving the bar was horrendous so we had very little sleep. A bad recommendation from the hostel but then again they cant really be blamed for outside noise in a city on a friday night, so we did not get too upset.
Our second hiccup was that our heating had not been switched on before we arrived so we were checked into a freezing cold room (considering it was minus 12 degrees outside we were not happy) we then thought we would get a hot shower to warm up while the heating from the radiators we switched on ourselves warmed up only to find the hot water was luke warm and ran out after 5 minutes! We reported this to reception and were helped by a very charming gentleman and the problem was fixed although the room did not fully warm up until the next morning (it was a very large room) so it did ruin our only night in this beautiful hostel.
However the breakfast did rather make up for it which was fantastic - the best breakfast we have ever had, better than luxury hotels we have stayed in.
We haven't been put off and would stay again as I'm sure our hiccups would not happen again.
