In september me and a friend visited the hotel as a stop to our destination in Italy and on the way back to Holland. We slept in a dorm room and had a lovely stay. The people there are easy going and you see a lot of young people hanging out playing games, pooling or simply connecting at the tables and on the couches. The hostel has a modern trendy look and really give off a good vibe. It was perfect for one night in the dorm room. Next time I will try out the cube's as well. I would highly recommend this hostel if you want to relax, work or meet new people.

I spent one night at the capsule hotel. It was very neat, with lots of facilities and spaces for different activities, like dinning (indoors and outdoors), pool table area, a yoga room, a reading room, laundry room, etc. Bathrooms were clean and the showers are private and super spacious. I had an issue with my entrance card and the lady at the reception quickly solved it for me. I very much recommend the place for solo travelers.
