It was really nice to stay in the HI Jail Hostel. I did always felt save and didn't worried about leaving my luggage. For valuables you can use a locker. Just the feeling to stay in a old jail was really cool. What could you do better?! There is nothing, except that it would be amazing if you get the free-nights in one of the cells for prisoners back. Maybe with a special contract. If there is a chance, please let me know -!!!-

The jail cell experience was fantastic so glad I got the chance to do it. Probably the most comfortable nights sleep I've had in months. The jail tour was brilliant should be mandatory for all guests :) could improve the bar situation multiple times it should've been open but the barman didn't turn up, I think that's poor hen you advertise an insure bar and it really stopped a lot of socialising opportunities in the hostel. Top marks for the breakfast superb!!

Concept de la prison très sympathique (malgré le bruit après 23h même si cela n'est pas imputable à l'établissement mais plutôt aux clients...) Douches communes incroyablement propres et donc très appréciées. Personnel très sympathique.
