I usually stay in 4 star and up hotel rooms, but I felt adventurous. I had a private room that was comfortable considering. It is no frills but it was expected. Check in was easy and the front desk staff was very informative. The bathroom was cleaned twice a day so there was no issue in that department either. The hostel was located right near a tram into city center, as well as a supermarket and pizzeria only 5 minutes away by foot.
I was expecting there to be a lively party in the hostel, where you can meet people, but it was really quiet, and the guests kept to themselves. That can be a plus or a minus, depending on what you're looking for.
Overall, I'm happy that my first experience in a hostel was a positive one.
