How to Get There
Hostel was pretty to easy to find and close to a metro station. The staff are friendly and helpful. I also like that you get free breakfast if book direct; although the breakfast wasn't very interesting. I liked that they had activity nights so on the first night there was free pasta and the second night was a film night with free popcorn - great way to meet people. Unfortunately the other 2 nights the activities never happened despite being advertised.
The dorm room and bathroom were both fine; comfy bed, privacy curtain, charging point per bed and locker for belongings.
My only real issue with the place is the noise of the traffic from the road outside and the noise from the bar downstairs. Because there's no aircon the window needed to be open and there was constant sirens, horns honking, drunk people talking loudly outside - it made it difficult to get a decent nights sleep.
It was quite easy to arrive to this hostel from the airport using subway transportation. The directions given by the hostel are clear and concise. Upon arrival, the hostel upgraded us from a dorm to a private room, which was so kind of them. The canal is beautiful and has great bars and some boat rides available. Staff is multilingual, which is always appreciated. There is a sports bar below the hostel with local beer that tastes great. Recommend this hostel!
Stayed here just one night in a 12 bed mixed dorm, room was very spacious and curtains provided good privacy but watch your head in the bunks as they are a little low! Nearest metro was about 8mins walk with a small supermarket nearby. All staff seemed busy and breakfast was basic but quality. Only issue, mens bathroom was on opposite end of my room down a long corridor. Its a big hostel. The receptionists were polite and approachable. There was an American girl who I found to be quite pleasant! Good hostel
