Poor 2.0
Avoid at all costs if possible
Rooms were too small and tight, hard to move around with 6 bed and everyone with their stuff. Bathroom with shower and toilet extremely tight. Front desk for 2 males were not very friendly. Never told me about the 6 euros needed for the towel (I brought my own) and never asked me if i wanted breakfast. They just checked me in without even really caring about me because they didn't even look at me. Just handed me my room key and thats it. I even asked for a bottom bunk since i stayed for 2 nights and was told they were all full. Later i noticed 2 bottom bunks had girls that only stayed 1 night so they could have easily moved them to a top bunk and me to a bottom bunk. Ladies that helped me with my plane ticket to print were very nice. Location is good next to train station and free walking tour is picked up at 10:30am on time. Other then that, avoid at all costs.

Pay as you get...Service is per pay.
Checkin was late although I went there at 2, the room wasn't ready. They took a long time at the check-in counter. When asked for a change of room, they made me wait for a long time before they can arrange the room. The staff weren't customer friendly. No AC in Room ...Windows can't be open and had to keep the Room door open.

You get what you pay for.
If you pay a third the cost of a decent hotel, you get a third the quality. Simple math. Upside: bed was much more comfortable than most hostels and the bat downstairs was cool. Downside: one of my nights was ruined by a heard of young teenagers litterly running up and down the halls until 1am and back at it at 7am. I complained to the front desk and they said they'd send someone, but never did. I complained again at checkout and they gave me a free espresso which was nice. It really felt more like a cheap hotel and not a hostel, but that's just me. I'd recommend staying some place else that doesn't allow children.

Good 6.0
I didn't like it !
Room was extremely hot at night and because they have elderly people in the room the got mad if u open the windows! They had a fan in my room so I tried to use it but an old guy started screaming and yelling at night and kick the fan and after he disconecte the fan and put it away! It was like living with Avery cranky old man so the room was extremely uncomfortable to be cuz the guy and the heat! I end up leaving a day earlier cuz I didn't like it the room situation. Also the bathroom are extremely uncomfortable and small.
