Great party hostel Jul 16, 2014
I stayed at this hostel a number of times and knew quite a few people who were staying here long term. I wouldn't recommend to stay here more than a couple weeks but it's great if you are looking for somewhere to crash after a big night or want to meet new people. There a lot of people coming through this hostel everyday so it gets a little crazy at mealtimes and check-out. They do a free dinner here which was actually pretty good depending on the day, you have to get in early though and usually end up sitting on the floor to eat as pretty much everyone staying at the hostel is packed into the dining area for free food.
The rooms and bathrooms were well cleaned, but with most people staying at this hostel just there to party there was a lot of mess every morning. There is no alcohol allowed to be brought into the hostel and it will be confiscated if the staff find any.
It's just a few minutes walk to get to the bars, but bear in mind it can be noisy if you're staying in a room on the busy side of the street, also the first couple floors are loud as there is another bar below the hostel.
There is a sauna in the hostel, this is awesome after a day in the snow, it only fits a few people though.
Staff are friendly and helpful, there is also a tour booking desk in the lobby if you need more ideas.
This was a fun hostel and I would stay here again.
