    Not to family friendly.

    Very intimidating place to arrive after dark. Alcohol, tatoos and a bar atmosphere at check in made It Awkward for my family. Nice bakery down the street though!

    Wonderful Experience

    Good prices, the people there are friendly. Rooms are clean and the lobby is comfy! There is also a luggage room where I was able to safely leave my things while I toured the city.

    Standard hostel; a little small. Only qualm I had was I paid extra to stay in an all-female dorm and they kept booking men into our room.

    Had to change room as the first stank of tobacco - despite no smoking policy obviously some selfish egoists don't care less. Anyway another room found - lots of warm radiators made for a very comfortable night. Bar and ATM machine avaialble as well so very handy.

  • 2,0.Poor

    Chose this hotel just because of its proximity to the station, but turned out to be one of the worst decisions. Extremely claustrophobic rooms, not very well kept and very poor furnishings and incompetent staff. For 10 buks more you can go for an Ibis or likes, which has much higher standards than this hotel. Wont even come close to the AO hotels ever!!!

    Clean and a great price for a short stay

    Rooms were clean. It was nice to be have a kitchen available to keep somethings cold in the fridge. Price was great for a quick stop in Aachen. We would stay there again.
