    Fantastic host and good location”

    The owner of the hostel is incredibly friendly. He knows the names of every single one of his guests and always is polite and helpful. The hostel itself is definitely sufficiently equipped. Plenty of toilets, a quite big kitchen and everything is very clean. One thing that could be better are the power plugs. There aren't too many to charge your devices.

    The host Mo makes you feel like family. When people leave, they are hugging and grateful to stay here. Kitchen has some interesting appliances like the oven, but has a freezer which is nice in a hostel. The location is quiet and has many areas to hangout or use the wifi. Back area and laundry line is nice.

    Staff is very nice. Cheap hostel but very clean room. The kitchen is a bit small but everything is fine. By the way, there is no elevator. So it is a little bit tough for heavy luggage.

    Friendly place but sound insulation is not good”

    Very friendly place. However, probably we stayed on the ground floor(twin bedroom), very close to the door to the reception lobby, and the shower room. The sound insulation is not very good at this house. We got a lot of noise from reception(people talk, television, slap door, water sound from shower room)......We could not sleep before 12 and be awakened in the very early morning around 6. Beware if you can not stay in a noise place. (probably the other floor is ok? Just check when you check-in)
