    Everything perfect. Fine staff, available at any time. Good location near the railway station. Kitchen and chill room helps to socialize. More than I expected for no money.

    Mattress too soft.

    Joe the worker there is nice but other staff members serve their own “workaway” interests over that of the guests staying there and seem to isolate themselves from the guests, which makes for a limited social experience. Staff also seem to make up 90% of the people staying there and it had more of a “squat” vibe than hostel. Whole place has an odd layout and barely any light gets in which makes for a slightly deflating atmosphere, especially given the family of six that are conjoined via housing onto the hostel

    The area is particularly dodgy and I can’t imagine solo or female travellers would feel comfortable. Everyone there seems to live lives separate to that of guests and seem to not want to engage with guests, at times making me feel particularly unwelcome. The Dutch guy on reception spent one night being rude to me all night as to show off to what appeared to be the only female guest to stay there for quite a while. Weird atmosphere, contrary to its name.
