    Exceptional

    Very cosy clean and comfortable room. Staff is reliable helpful and pleasant. There is a well equipped kitchen where you can make a dinner. A breakfast is inclueded. You can use wi-fi internet here. This hostel is really close to the city center and 3 or 4 bus-stops from main bus and railway station. The room is quiet and warm.

    Fabulous

    Very friendly english speaking staffs. They helped me a lot. The hostel is located a little bit far from the center of the city, but 10~15 minutes by walk. Trams are also available.

    silent place, close to downtown and few grocery stores

    very basic breakfast and horrible peach yogurts

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Location is perfect, just 5 minutes walk to the old city. The room was small, but clean and cosy enough for hostel. Staff is friendly and willing to help

    Do not count on having breakfast there - it's almost uneatable

    Fabulous

    We also stayed at Premium Hostel (the floor below) but preferred Freedom. Close enough to the old city to walk (around 10 minutes), though you have to catch a tram/ bus from the train station. There is not much food or entertainment of note close to the hostel, but transport connections are good. Room was small but clean. Room was warm during the day but cooled off at night if a window to the main road was kept open. Unfortunately, the street outside can be noisy with traffic, and one night loud music and garbage trucks kept us awake. Not a social atmosphere, though a simple but sufficient breakfast (bread, selection of jams, cheese and yoghurt) is included in a common breakfast room. Walk very quickly across the nearby main road.

    Noise from outside the room if the window was open (it had to be as otherwise the room was hot).

    Fabulous

    Nice breakfast!!

    It was probably our bad luck but some of the guest were a bit noisy.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    High standard of amenities, helpful staff,very convenient location,stayed here before,Booked.net worked in reserving rooms successfully, would use it again.I would like to stay at the Freedom again but would ask for a room away from the stair well.

    There is a hostel below Freedom, called Premium Hostel. The noise coming up from there, teenagers running around all through the night, kept me awake. I should have said something to the night staff, but thought they would use their initiative to stop the rowdy behaviour.

    Superb

    Nice and friendly staff, always very helpful. Fairly close to the Old Market. Booking through Booked.net was cheaper than at the reception desk. Definitively recommended!

    Very good

    I liked the personel. The receptionnists were very nice, amazing! And I liked the posiblity to pay after our stay.

    In our room it was realy hot and if we opened the window, the street was so noisy that we couln't leave the window opened during the night.
