5 star hostel, great service, perfect location!
1: Location: couldn't be better!! Walk to Central train station in 1 minute and everything is within walking distance. 2: Service:professional, friendly, very helpful front desk! Better than the 5star hotel ones who gives fake expensive smiles, you get genuine friendly service:) 3:big room. A free locker on request by corridor. 4. P. S. I was lucky to have my first night almost alone, very good sleep:)

Atmospheric with enthusiastic staff
Excellent hostel with attentive and friendly staff. Bar is atmospheric, staffed by top class, lively and helpful individuals. Beds are comfortable. Decor is typical hostel plain style. Location is perfect, close to nightlife, shopping and railway station. Shower floors slightly slippy but water is warm and everything is clean.

Very good 8.0
Had a great time here. Staff were great, especially the bar staff. The room was big and wasn't crowded with bunk beds, instead it was just single beds, it was great to not feel confined by having a bed above you.

OK hostel, not the worse, but I've seen better
Next to the Cathedral and the train station. Perhaps too close to the train station, if you sleep with the windows open, you'll hear all the trains. In my five beds bedroom, there were virtually no electric plug. All the beds had personnel lamps, but none of them were plugged in, which meant that people had to open the main lamp at night when coming in. Also, I had to use my battery bank to charge my phone at night. The opening and especially closing doors are noisy, not the best at night. The washroom are nice and clean in the morning, but can be quite disgusting at night, especially on Friday or Saturday night since there's a bar downstairs and people are partying. There's nice big lockers in the hall, but none in the rooms.
