10/10 Exceptional

This is a great hostel. The beds are very comfortable, and the rooms are spacious and clean. The bathrooms are great as well. There are very few people in the hostel. I arrived in the morning, and it was a quest to get inside the hostel, since you need a code to enter, and there may be noone at the front desk. Probably it would be easier to notify the property about the time when I arrive. The location is good as well, close to the train station.
