This hostel is currently going under a lot of renovation so this changes quite a bit. The Room was large, quiet, and spacious as well as comfortable. The Staff was very friendly and helpful. The elevator was very small and not efficient at certain times of the days and since there was a lot of renovation it was very hard to socialize with anyone else besides your roommates.

The hostel charges a lot for bedding and breakfast. They closed for renovation in the morning so we had to walk in the rain and pay as much as a night's accommodation to leave bags at the station. If the website had said it was closing we would have chosen another hostel for our stay. We were not told by staff until morning about the closure. Very disappointing.
