Nice location. Airy space, well designed. Door system is quirky- I liked it but some may not (you need your phone on you always!) Cleanliness is so so. The toilets look jaded - need some new urinals for example. They were sometimes clean, but sometimes not so much. The main issue for me was the noise level. There is a balcony and it was right at my room window and the noise form the people on the first night had to be heard to be believed. Funnily enough, second night was very quiet.

Overall I like this hostel. It is close to the city centre and the facilities are quite good. However, the females bathrooms were flithy and the kitchen wasn't the cleanest either. The rooms were really nice though
