Nice and clean hostel, the rooms are small but do their job, staff are friendly and always willing to help, it is within walking distance from the centre and a big commercial area in the city. They have laundry service on request for good money.

Good location in the city : not too far from the center but not in the middle of the noise either. The room we've got was really small, it was even hard to get into the bed when the room was full. I think they should have more bathroom and the cleanliness was debatable...but if you want to save some...

Stayed two nights here. The rooms are small - pictured is the double room with photo taken from the doorway. Kitchen is what can be expected. My concern was security - the hostel requires you to hand in your door key every time you leave, giving the staff access to the rooms. But also, if there's no one there when...

The staff was kind and the kitchen very functional. However there is no breakfast available in the morning and the room's furniture were old and uncomfortable. The 4 beds dorm was small and oppressive. Only two people could be in the room at the same time.

The place is mostly French speaking, the owner is very nice and funny. The place is kinf of messy and always full of people but that is what gives it a different atmosphere. The location is very central, the dorms are kind of small but sufficient to sleep, common areas are quite clean. The two kitchens are a plus for...

This was one of the more... quirky hostels we stayed at! There were quite a few things wrong with it, but we quite liked the vibe which made up for it. The dorm rooms are way to cramped, so if more than two people are trying to do something in there at the same time it's not possible. You have...

As the title says, the hostel wasn't bad but it wasn't anything special either. The staff was reasonably friendly but the room was tiny. We got a bunk bed and even then there was about a half foot gap between the wall and the bed. There was access to a kitchen and the wifi was pretty good as well. It's...

We had a room for 6 which had 3 bunk beds. There was barely room to move around the room as we were all getting ready for the races but we had a bathroom beside us and made the most of it! The bathrooms are communal which was a slight downside. You get what you pay for with this hostel,...
