The location is perfect, just in the centre. The staff quite kind and professional. Things to be improved (in a constructive way): bed's mattresses (shabby and less comfortable) and the noise caused by other guests.

Das Hostel war das Geld absolut nicht wert. Zimmer, Küche, Bäder waren absolut dreckig, man hat durch die hellhörigen Wände alles im Flur gehört, die Ruhezeiten wurden von den anderen Gästen nicht beachtet und keiner vom Hostel hat sich um die Einhaltung gekümmert, lediglich mit einem Ventilator ausgestattet war es viel zu warm im Zimmer, die Betten waren unbequem. Beim Einchecken wurde uns der Rabatt mit den Jugendherbergskarten verwehrt, den wir erst 2 Tage später nach mehrmaligem Nachfragen doch noch erhalten haben. Der Rezeptionist beim Einchecken war auch nicht sonderlich motiviert uns zu helfen oder uns freundlich zu empfangen. Das WLAN hat zu 95% der Zeit nicht funktioniert, WENN man es denn überhaupt mal im Zimmer empfangen konnte. Zusammengefasst war der Aufenthalt in dem Hostel der Horror und ich würde nie wieder dort hingehen, erst recht nicht bei dem unverschämt hohen Preis.

It's a good hostel at a great location. Check in was a bit unorganized cause they changed our rooms 3 times but that's all right.
