Four friends and I stumbled made reservations here planning to stay for only one night. Our plans for night 2 fell through, however, and we had no place to go. The hipstel was at full capacity that night and couldn’t take us another night, but the receptionist, Herc, called every place he knew for what I’m convinced was more than an hour until he found a place for us to stay. I could not be more impressed with the service, and although this happened a year ago, I still message Herc regularly as a friend. The hipstel also offers delicious meals and daily activities for all its guests, and everyone staying there was just having a really fun time. This place cares about its patrons.
The hipstel was my first time staying at a hostel. I was worried about the cleanliness since I was told it was mostly young people. But the staff & the guests were on top of their own messes. I liked the fact that they offered a decent dinner with a beer for 5€, different every night. Breakfast was exceptional as well. The hostel is very central & friendly staff wiling to help you out with anything possible. Will definitely be going back.
