The location of this hostel was perfect! Everything was within walking distance for the most part, or the tram stop is at the end of the street. The dorms were clean, and somewhat spacious. The breakfast is not as extensive as advertised on their website. The only negative thing I have to say about this hostel is the staff. I arranged the airport shuttle, which is not round trip, even though they confirmed it was a round trip price via email and then said there was a language barrier and they didn't understand the question. We waited at the airport at least 45 before the shuttle left, and then when we arrived at the hostel we were greeted with an interrogation of why we were arriving so late. The staff was rude, unfriendly, and somewhat disrespectful the whole time. Anytime we went to the reception area to ask someone a question, no one was there. We would then look all over the hostel and not be able to find anyone. I waited 15 minutes for someone to show up so I could get a towel! I recommend this hostel if you want a convenient place to stay, but the staff was horrible, and because of them I do not think I would stay here again.
