This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Well, if you're over 30/40 years old I would advise you to stay in another hostel.
Its hardly a10 min walk to the center.
It's a Church building, altough there's no statues, saints, crucifix, bells or bibles, nothing like that, dont worry!, you can hardly notice that its a church building once you're inside.
Bathrooms, showers, toilets, bar, kitcheb (yes there's a kitchen wich is awesom for students to cook and save money), staff, are more than fine, no complains about that.
Rooms....they don't have seiling....the rooms walls are made of wood and they're thin, there's no key to lock them. Its quite cold (ask for more blanckets), and you can hear everything if there're loud people over. Yes I was quite scared when I first got there....there was no seiling!....But I end up changing my mind. Im glad I picked that old, sooo cheap, and the staff is really great, they look like a really close group of friends, the only bad thing about this hostel are the rooms, but still everyone was quite respectfull and quite, then again there's always the change that you might get stupid and loud people (in this case you wont rest). This is why I would only advise this hostel to younger people.
Do not regreat at all of staying there.
