9 out of 10

Right by Central, this hostel offers boutique budget accommodation. Dorms (various configurations) are modern and very spacious, with extra-large lockers. Private rooms are hotel-quality; it's a value-packed option. It's really well run, catering to the needs of the party crew and those who want a quieter stay. The huge kitchen is a plus and the fabulous roof terrace is a show-stealer. Top marks.

The hostel is likely to close in late 2018 as a new entrance to Central Station is scheduled to be built here. They plan to relocate, so check the website for details.
