Nice hostel rooms

You will like these rooms compared to other hostels. Many guests felt that rooms were a decent size and that the size and beds made for a comfortable stay. The hotel staff also did a decent job of keeping the rooms neat and clean.

Close to so much

The hotel is in a good location of the city as it is close to public transportation and the train station. The river is close by as are many different bars and restaurants. Overall the hostel is in a nice neighbourhood in the city.

Negative Reviews

Very noisy

Guests did not like how noisy the hostel was. Many felt that the walls and doors were too thin as many sounds could be heard from the hallways and adjacent rooms.

Service not the best

You might want to expect long waits at times. Guests felt that the hotel staff, especially at the reception area, were very busy and could not take the time needed for each individual guest. Some guests had to wait some time for service.

Plan for the lavatory

The bathrooms at the hostel were not the best. Many guests felt the lavatories were small and cramped. There was very little in the showers as well. The other problem that guests had was there was no ventilation in the lavatories.
