Very Good 8.0
Great! My charger failed when I arrived at 0600 that day. The staff were quick to lend me a charger, and invited me to stay in the common area for as long as I wanted. I went and visited the city and returned again in the evening. Super friendly staff, everything else is good. No complaints.

Exceptional 10.0
Right in the city centre
Had an excellent time at Grand central hostel. The building was located only about a 5 minute walk from the train station and right on the tram line. There were lots of resturants and a mall not too far away, and there were a few museums near the hostel as well as other only about a 20 minute walk away. Staff were friendly and helpful in planning tours, food recommendations and overall.
