Water pressure in the hostel can drop leaving rooms on 4th floor like mine short of water for shower and basin. But this only affected me on 1 day out of 4 and the room was otherwise excellent. I marked the location down a bit because it’s in a business district to the N of the city centre and it’s a pretty long walk to the sights, but the Metro is v convenient. The hostel has a v pleasant bar and courtyard and I would certainly stay there again!

Die Küche für Backpacker hatte nur eingeschränkte Öffnungszeiten, sodass man zum Beispiel nicht vormittags an die eignenen Lebensmittel im Kühlschrank kam. Außerdem fanden wir es schade, dass eine Reinigungskraft in unserem Zimmer die Badtür offen stehen ließ, sodass die Badlampe, welche mit dem Öffnen der Tür verbunden war, in unserer Abwesenheit stundenlang brannte.
