Hi I'm Matthias, an italian teacher that was at the Hostel last week with 37 students. I would like to thank the Snoozel Hostel for the way they host us. It was all simply relaxing, thing that is not easy to say after a week with 37 kids. In particular I would like to thank the people of the staff...

Rooms were great, bathrooms were clean, and the people at the front desk were lovely and helpful. Breakfast is basically toast or cereal but there are plenty of places nearby if you want to buy your own groceries and cook in there kitchen downstairs. It's also next door to the coach station which is perfect.

The first thing I noticed was the really friendly and motivated staff at the reception. They helped us a lot in these two days, gave us recommendations where to go and to get there. Also the hanging out area is pretty nice. It's a big room with a pool table, a few cosy couches, books and a TV. There is...

Stayed here two nights with 4 friends. They were nice enough to not separate the 5 of us by placing a 5th bed in the room; however, our bathroom light did not work. They didn't check it the first time we asked. The second time we asked they checked it when we were out, replaced the lightbulb but it still...
