    It's a good budget hostel for students but not suitable for anyone expecting some comfort.

    The staff in the evening was pretty rude and condescending. Told us we were not allowed to eat in the room. They only have 2 double rooms in the hostel located on the 4th and 3rd floor! We walked at least 6 flights of stairs with a ton of luggage. All of the furniture in the main lobby had a really bad musty smell

    -Nice pub,reasonable prices,very good asian restaurant next door.very stylish old swimming pool spa 500m away,cheap and able hairdressers nearby,got a haircut. -Very friendly people easy to meet and sit at same table.I sat at a table and met the nicest german blondine from Freiburg,talking the most delightful french with her friendly boyfriend.

    I like a lot of deutsche welle and rock but the live music in the pub was funny but really not my taste when I was there.

    The staff are really helpful. The metro only allow ticket purchase using coins. The staff helped in exchanging some coins. Luggage can be put in the reception with a hiking hanger during the check day. The atmosphere was good as there is a bar downstairs. Need to use lock to enter the room. Water supply in room.

    A bit crowded as it is next to the carrefour. The facilities are old but usable. Need a lock of 6mm thick to fit their locker, can be borrowed in the reception with a deposit of 5 euros. Only one washroom on a floor but I did not need to wait at all. Personally do not like to use the key all the time, not convenient. Bed light is super bright. Need to remove your own bedsheet when you checkout.
