Location is great. Very close to station just 1 min to walk. I can go where I want using one line and also another station is close too.
Everything was fine

The staff was incredibly friendly, the lockers were convenient and the location was great.
There were holes in the duvet and stains on the mattress and pillows - the kind of things you wouldn't notice if you didn't have to put bedding on yourself. But ya do... The shower only gave scolding hot water, the air in the room was extremely dry and dusty and it actually caused my throat and nose to act up all night long. Wouldn't stay again.

Beds were comfy, lockers were a good size. In a good location near a metro station.
Bathrooms were a little dirty.

Great value for money. Amazing staff which can help you if you have any issue. Everything is made for you to feel comfortable. Great that they have restrictions on food and alcohol inside the room. Also want to mention an amazing view from rooms and of course from the terrace. It was cold there now but a great place to chill and have a glass of wine in warmer seasons. Thanks for the stay! Will definitely visit this hostel in other cities.

Tutto molto pulito e ordinato, bagno e stanza grande. La birra regalata è una ottima opportunità per socializzare
Un giorno sono andata a fare la doccia e non c'era acqua calda...capisco che loro hanno avuto un piccolo problema. Dopo mezz'oretta il problema era stato risolto

The most important thing to note is that as a deposit for your room key they require a form of photo ID! We weren't aware of this, I tried to give them my passport as ID but they wouldn't accept it. Luckily I had a UK railcard with me that they would accept.

Myself and a friend shared in a mixed dorm of 6 people. There was an ensuite bathroom which was a good size and had a very powerful shower! There was a little shelf, plug socket and a light next to each bed which was very convenient. The lockers were very spacious and were opened with your room key (each key is assigned to one locker) so no need to take a padlock. The mattresses were a little thin but comfortable enough.

The hostel is next to a very busy road with trams, cars and ambulances making a lot of noise all night. Would probably be more of an issue in summer if it was hot and you needed to have a window open. With earplugs and the window shut there was only a little bit of noise.

The location was very good, there was a Netto store about 5 minutes walk away and a Lidl about 10 minutes walk. There were tram stops and a metro station only 5 minutes walk away too. Museum island took around 10-15 minutes to walk to.

The kitchen area was okay but the microwave was broken the entire time we were there (5 days) which was a bit inconvenient. There were two hobs each with 4 rings but it did tend to get busy the later in the evening it got. There was very limited cutlery, only about 3 forks in the whole place but luckily we'd bought our own.

The hostel didn't run its own activities and didn't have much of an atmosphere (maybe because it's off-season) so might not be as good for solo travellers.

The major downside was the lack of WiFi in the bedrooms. It seemed to be designed to only allowe access to the WiFi in the reception, bar and lift (elevator) area. This was pretty inconvenient when trying to plan activities as you'd have to go to one of these places to Google opening hours or to book tickets for things.

We didn't eat the breakfast but it seemed quite expensive for what it was. There was cereal, cold meats and bread and a coffee machine which didn't seem worth the almost €5 they were charging (especially with cheap food shops so close by).

Overall the hostel was clean and the facilities were decent, would definitely recommend.

Cool lobby and bar
Central heating in our room wasn't working, so it was really cold. Also there were problems with hot water in bathroom sometimes.

I had stayed here before so I knew it was fabulous. It’s the reason we chose to stay there again this time around. The location is perfect, it’s about a 10 minute walk from the main tram station so you can get to everywhere you need to go in no time at all. The staff are so friendly and anything we needed was given to us. For example one of the radiators weren’t working in the room and we were provided with a portable rad which did almost as good of a job. The rooftop bar is lovely which an outstanding view of the city. Overall we had a very pleasant stay :)
Only the fact that one of our radiators wasn’t working but it was sorted for us.

The buffet breakfast was full of options for such a small price. The atmosphere was great and even though I was there during the week in January, the hostel was full, the common areas busy and I met lots of people from around the world. I would definitely recommend this hostel!

Staff responsiveness and free luggage lockers.
No heating and no warm water. These are basic things to survive in month of Jan.

The staff were friendly
I stayed in the female dorm- there was a fingernail in my bed and old blood on the pillow. Really let the hostel down. Plus no microwave in the kitchen.
