1/5 Terrible

Business traveller
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not very clean- noisy - no heat
The place was listed as 4 beds room and in reality it was 8 bed room. The place was very dirty, the heat didnโ€™t work and it was hard to find the entrance and check in. One you check in you need 3 codes for 3 different doors and and key for the entrance. The place located above a life music venue so no sleeping is possible until late. Not worth the price.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The location was perfect for what I needed, and despite being over a popular bar the hostel was nice and relaxing and quiet. Exactly what I wanted. Residents were kind and friendly and I appreciated that they tried to maintain a level of respect and had systems of labeling things in place to make organizing easy
