Lot's of space, good pictures on the walls. And right in the center! Everything interesting is nearby and a location is quiet enough. I would recommend this hostel for big companies who want to save money. Not too much toilets but enough.

Other hostel visitors were also friendly and into the travel life apart from one weird dude who shared my room. But I reckon the staff couldn't do anything about him. There is some free food, free coffee and...
