  • Is it quiet at night?

    We have a receptionist at nighttime who is responsible for keeping the other guests quiet. While we make every attempt to keep the building as quiet as possible this obviously depends on the collaboration of others.

  • Can I use my own sleeping bag?

    No. Bringing in unwashed sleeping bags from other hostels raises the risk of bringing in bedbugs to the hostel. We have extra covers available on request but we ask guests not to use their own sleeping bags
