    The boss of the hostel was so kind; he waited for me when I arrived at 9:40h pm and showed me all facilities. I entered my room and all of my roomies were drinking on the floor. Although i wanted to sleep, i joined them for a nighout which was awesome as the club was only 5mins away. Can fully recommend this hostel!!

    The Hostel was okay but nothing special. The kitchen was a bit too dirty.

    Sehr hellhörige Räume und durch die automatischen Türschließer wacht man nachts ständig auf, wenn man einen nachtaktiven Nachbarn hat. Ich habe leider nur Personal erlebt, dass kurz angebunden ist und sehr beschäftigt wirkt: „Der Parkplatz befindet sich hinterm Haus!“ Da das Hostel mitten in einer Geschäftsstrasse liegt, bin ich 4x vorbei gefahren, bevor ich’s gefunden habe. Gut hat mir die geräumige und gut ausgestattete Küche gefallen sowie die Lounge mit Sofa und Sitzkissen.

    Check in was short and without any explanation to facilities, check out etc. Found a bracelet under my pillow, which indicates that sheets have not been changed! Bunk bed was unstable and shaking with the slightest movement. Room was a mess, where you couldn't walk without stepping on someone's stuff (obviously not the hostels fault). Was supposed to come back for another night, but cancelled the booking. On the plus side: Restaurant staff in the morning was very nice.

    Das Hostel hat eine gute Lage und war einfach zu finden. Die Einrichtung im 8-er Zimmer war sehr einfach: 4 Metallstockbetten die stark geschwankt haben und ein alter Stuhl. An sich war es ungemütlich. Die Mitarbeiter waren unfreundlich und nicht zuvorkommend. Uns wurde eine Buchung gekündigt und der Mitarbeiter an Telefon klang einfach nur genervt. Die Anzahlung haben wir genau wie die Kaution für die Zimmerkarte auch nicht zurückbekommen. Eine Nacht aber nicht länger!

    Die schlimmste Unterkunft, die ich bisher hatte. Das private Einzelzimmer gleicht einer Gefägniszelle, grau gestrichen und ohne richtiges Fenster. Ich habe daher nochmal einen Aufpreis gezahlt und bin ins Ensuite Zimmer gezogen. Das war nicht viel besser. Zimmer dunkel. Hinter dem 2 Meter hoch gelegenen Fenster befand sich die Klimaanlage des Nachbargebäudes, sodass man die ganze Nacht das Summen hörte (trotz Ohropax). Der Mitarbeiter an der Rezeption war wenig motiviert und wenig hilfsbereit.
