Easy to book. I contacted the hostel after booking, and they were prompt and helpful with their reply. Check in was smooth. The reception staff was consistently friendly and helpful. The common room was bright and open. We booked two double rooms. They had very different layouts, and both were quite satisfactory.

Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    Great location, it's more like a hotel than a hostel but has a nice common area to work and the restaurant attached is very good. Room was nice and comfortable, they gave us a great view of the library/road. Elevator is a plus too! I would recommend the place for a weekend

    Really nice place in a great location (but quiet street). The staff here are genuinely friendly and always happy to have a chat or help you with anything. The common areas allow you to interact with other guests or do your own thing. Strowis is a great example of what hostels should be like :)

    Very friendly and welcoming staff, great back garden and lounge area where you can sit and do work or play games and hangout. Everything was well organised, from the lockers to the kitchen and the working hours, and overall the vibe was very laid back and comfortable. Great location, near party areas but also on a quiet side street. One of the best hostel experiences I've had in a long while.
