A stunning and unique building with loads of character! The main lounge is beautifully decorated, with plenty of space to relax and hang out with people or just sit and read. There's a tea/coffee & vending machine in there too. The long desk at one side is perfect for using your phone or laptop as there are plenty of sockets provided there (and all over the lounge) to charge them. Really comfy beds, with privacy curtains surrounding all bunks which is great if you want to sleep or rest during the day. There's also small bedside lamps by each bed if you want to get changed in your bunk or read late at night without disturbing other guests by turning on the main light.

Great location, bathrooms didn’t have any soap at the time of stay, liked the mirrors in the hallway/corridor area - useful for applying makeup and getting ready. Hair straighteners and hairdryer available. comfy and clean bed, nice room to stay in and could lock away items/belongings (bring your own padlock) however snoring in the room meant I got no sleep!

It is an absolutely good hostel, especially you can cook yourself in the kitchen facilities. But though it is little bit far from the city center, it is perfect location to approach from the airport. The coach stop is very near from the hostel. The building is a bit old, but it is also a good experience to stay in a exotic one.

Very nice cadre, friendly staff

A great stay overall. The first room was quite... intimate, but my second room was wonderful

Aamupalasta lähtien loistomesta. Työntekijöitä ympäri kellon ja helposti saa ajan kulumaan pubipuolellakin, jos haluaa hengähtää.
