    The price

    The sheets were nice and clean. The staff were great and always giving me feedbacks. As I didn’t want to spend money for just a couple of hours in the city so I chose this hostel. But I didn’t like the experience... it’s not for me to share bathroom and it didn’t seem clean

    The shower, the clean toilets, the security

    I don't know why we have to rent sheets. Sheets must be a part of the bed we are paying for. This makes no sense to me.

    Very good location in heart of old town. Simple,clean rooms. Bathrooms clean.

    Can be a bit noisy at night in that part of town. Rooftop could be a bit better setup.

    The staff is good
