Never stay here. The proprieters are the most unfriendly people I think I have ever met in Europe. I show up about 3 in the afternoon, not an unreasonable time to expect to check in, but the lady makes a huge fuss about it. She lets me check in anyway, probably correctly gauging that I would have gone elsewhere had she not let me in until ridiculous normal check in at 5. I walk around town a little and then come back a little after 5 to find the place locked up tight. There are brother and sister waiting to check in and I need to get to my stuff. We wait for about an hour before the owners emerge to let us in. The rest of that day the workers at the hostel seemed to be in pain everytime they had to talk to the guests or help with anything. Me and the brother and sister went the enxt to to Switzerland. The place sucks but it is the closest thing to train station, so depends on what your priorities are.

Jake, I beg to differ on this place! Ok I admit the rooms are a bit cramped (and unsecure) and the lock out is a pain but....

The underground 'Igloo Bar' is really cool and makes the place really social! It is supposed to close at 1am I think but one night the manager (a crazy guy who always said 'I get my energy from the mountains') let us crank up the karaoke til about 2am before wanting to close. When we weren't content with that he drove 5 of us to a nightclub and busted some moves with us!

Hey that sounds cool, mabye they were in a bad mood when I was there. There were about 10 people staying in the whole place when I was there, so that mightve had something to do with it too.
