The hostel is in a great spot if your arrive by train, and close enough to walk to old town and ever further, while still being away from the busy the touristy parts. The staff was very welcoming and helpful, and all the people I shared a dorm with were very respectful. Security is good. - Anonymous

This hostel gets some very good reviews. However, sometimes guests feel that there are not enough bathrooms for the number of guests - mainly because this is an older building. Other guests find the security at the door to be a little annoying at night, but the positive side of this is that security is fairly tight.
