Friendly and location
We booked private double room with private bathroom. We were earlier than our intended arrival and was greeted by a very friendly guy who chatted with us and made us feel very welcomed despite being earlier than check in time. The room was great, it was spacious and had a big bathroom. The room felt cold but the comfy blankets kept us really warm. The towels and sheets were clean too. It was also surprisingly stylish even in the room, there were nice artistic touches even i a simple room. We loved it. Upon check out, a sweet, lovely lady helped us with our luggage and everything was a breeze! Mika, the dog, was also cool and nonchalant.
Nice and friendly reception. Good facilities. It has an elevator that you can go to your room so conveniently although you have so heavy carriers.
They are little far from the main station but you can reach there by feet in 10 minutes.
I arrived at about 7pm on a Friday night and the man behind reception was very welcoming and helpful. He even wished me happy birthday as it was that day as well! He handed me a Basel Card which is exceptionally helpful! I was in the green room and it was clean, comfy beds, genuinely a lovely room. I would definitely stay again and I’d highly recommend to travellers. The value for money is great. I didn’t use the kitchen services so can’t comment on that but the rooms themselves were great.
There was definitely not enough plugs in the green room. Myself and fellow hostellers had to fight (not literally) over who could charge what when! WiFi was AWFUL. Needs to be improved.
High price, per one night 88 euro for two persons
