Stopped here for Euro 2012. The facilities were first class, a very clean hostel with excellent showers. As I arrived very late the 24 hour opening was very helpful. The closeness to the metro was a bonus and the reception staff first class. Would certainly return to this hostel.

“We stayed in a double room with twin beds. The room is small, but the beds are very comfortable and spacious. Of the minuses only poor soundproofing. The rooms are all equally comfortable, but it is better to choose a single or double room.”

“it is better to check your reservation by phone before you arrive, choose beds not near door and upper beds (because there is hot in the room - there are no conditioners)”
