Perfect for a city break, not too far from the centre, coffee shop right next door - perfect for breakfast! Brand new, nice modern decoration, private rooms really do feel private and are quiet! I was very happy with my choice and felt I got great value and comfort for my money!
It was exactly what I was after. And I loved having a private room for a change.

I thought that this hostel was the best one I've ever stayed at. It was close to the train (a 12 minute walk), secure, well organised, clean, quiet and very reasonably priced. My only reservation would be that you wouldn't want to be a big person, or you'd have a squeeze to fit into the shower. No problem for me, but be aware of its compact dimensions. Top place to stay.

Nice, modern, clean, efficient, well-located, comfortable. Would stay again!
