Hostel has 24 hour reception which is on the 2nd floor with rooms on the higher floors, all serviced with a lift. My 6-bed en-suite dormitory was roomy and bed comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were evening events organised, but l didn’t participate as too tired by then! The downside was the self-catering kitchen - the one towel was not changed during my stay, the washing-up sponges and clothes were stained, all rubbish was put in one bin and there were no mugs for hot drinks. Shame as otherwise this is an otherwise excellent hostel.

We stayed to this hostel one week in november, during the « low season ». They were doing some renovations to their two main chilling spaces. Therefore the common space was the tiny kitchen where only 5 chairs were available. The reception area was used for the free sangria nights so it got packed very quickly. However, considering the rénovations, I would still recommend this hostel as it is super clean and very well located. And the staff was very nice and welcoming. Definetly a good choice if you are backpacking around and walk. Their initiatives to make people meet and talk was also well appreciated despite the lack of Space.

I booked a private room, sent an email stating that it would be twin beds (it was my brother and I) confirmed by email with an OK. When I arrived at the hostel the bed wasn't single bed and They was told me that there is no private room with single beds.

Good location and friendly staff. WiFi bandwidth was sometimes low, especially in the bedroom at night
