4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
This was a basic hostel located in an old but charming building. The staff was very helpful and the location was very good to stores, restaurants and the subway. It was a clean but very simple room. You had to run the shower for a few minutes before you got hot water. There was no hair dryer available as the listing said. Other than a few loud guests at night, we had a very pleasant stay!

Excellent location. Excellent response to inquiries when booking. Zero response after I’d paid and was inquiring about lost property. I hope there is room to elaborate later in the survey. Pretty much as described. No breakfast available. The building is built on a central atrium which funnels sound and it can be loud if the night staff are socializing late as they were when I stayed. Draws a good clientele.
