I felt unsafe in my room as a fight broke out between a few of the patrons. It was too noisy and I didnt like the Halloween party.

Hello Miguel Angel, Sorry to read that your stay was not up to your expectations. Indeed the hostel organises many daily activities, mostly to make the guests connect with one another, and to experience the local culture (such as the Halloween party). That said, the rooms ought to remain at all time safe and quiet for those looking to rest! Anyways, I’ll discuss the matter with the team to see how we could do better! Hoping that you still had a good time in the city! Nic, management team

Breakfast needs streamlining, with dishes, hot water, tea, and toasters all in one place. And cream cheese for bagels. The building was hot everywhere. Fragrance free laundry soap would be better for the environment and people with sensitivities. Educate guests on water conservation by instructing them to turn off the water while washing their dishes .

All those suggestions are certainly good ones and are duly noted. We are continuously improving our facilities and the way we operate the hostel. I have no doubts that you will notice improvements at every one of your stays at the hostel! Happy Travels, Nic, management team

Ich kann das hostel nur empfehlen. Ich hatte ein Zweibettzimmer mit eigenem Bad. Das Frühstück war für ein hostel ausgezeichnet. Auch der Aufenthaltsraum war gemütlich gestaltet und hat zum Verweilen eingeladen. Die Nähe zur U-Bahnstation hat es leicht gemacht um die Stadt gut zu erkunden. Die Mitarbeiter im hostel waren alle sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Großes Lob!!!
