We stayed at this hostel 4 nights and we had a luck first 3 nights, because there were no neighbors in our wing, but the last night we got 3 noisy neighbors in the next room and we could not sleep because of terrible audibility in this hostel. Also in our wing there were no internet connection because wireless network didn't cover that area. The breakfast was rather poor: toasts, some vegetables (not every day), juice and different sort of soft cheeses. However tea and coffee were available at any time of the day. There were not enough space in the kitchen, so if there are many of guests it makes a problem where to have a breakfast. Nevertheless except all these negative moments, the hostel is quite good to stay in: low prices, walking distance to railway station and city center, nice rooms, clean and cozy, friendly staff.
