The 4 You Hostel & Hotel

Recent guest reviews

My friends and I stayed in this place and thought it was great! Really close to the train station which made our travel days convenient. Beds, rooms, and bathrooms were clean. We loved the breakfast as well. Would recommend staying here. Our room was nice and quiet; however, the light did not work in our room.

The walls are thin and there was yelling and loud music pumping in the hallway which one can hear clearly in the room. At breakfast the next morning, I saw that the hostel was occupied by groups of teenagers on school trips. The bunk bed was squeaky and shaky. The room is small and very minimal- makes you not want to spend a minute longer in there than you have to. Wi-Fi worked fine (room on the second floor). The free breakfast buffet and welcome drink upon arriving are nice gestures.

The staff at the reception were okay but not extremely nice or willing to go over their way to help you. They got their job done anyway. The bar was very nice and there the staff was also nicer! The bathrooms were clean and nice, as were the bedrooms. Overall the hostel experience was good.

The staff was friendly, the locations is very good, had the luck of meeting some great people in my room, the bar is also very nice and bathrooms are super clean, but it was impossible to sleep with the noise.

The room we were in was a six man triple bunk bed room with a small desk and two chairs. The bedding/ mattress was adequate however the "pillow" was annoying to use, was like trying to sleep on a small bean bag. The main downside of this hostel is the WiFi. It is free however it is non existent in terms of speed only usable for receiving messages if anything. The bathrooms are fine 2 stools, 2 urinals and 3 shower cubicles (on level 2 at least). Breakfast was a good spread and had plenty of choice to keep you going throughout the morning. The bar area has a pool table, seating with tables and an electronic dartboard. It serves alcohol from 6pm, with prices for a stein of beer cheaper than in the city centre. All in all was pretty much perfect for what we needed which was a place fairly central.

The staf was helpful and the rooms were clean literally what else could you ask for? I was given free drink tickets that was very nice and you have a great location. I’ll probably be back soon. Hopefully it’ll be warmer.

Good location, 5 minutes walk from the train station. Three showers and two toilets per floor (about 30ish people). We went out of season so we rarely had to wait for the bathroom but I imagine it gets busier during the holiday season. Rooms were nice, storage was a tad annoying; metal crates under the bed which have to be slide out the whole way to be opened. Beds VERY creaky. Every time someone rolled over it was very loud and kept me up most of the night.

I booked this room in last moment . The location of this hostel is really close to the bus station and main railway station so it was great for me. I came into the hostel quite late but the staff was absolutely great and helpful. The room was ok. The breakfast was very delicious. You can take whatever you want and there is many possibilities. There is a breakfast corner.Some young people were little bit noisy close to the reception but it was Friday evening so it´s a normal in youth hostel.

Our check in was quick and friendly. The free welcome drink was an unexpected surprise. The lift, badly in need of technical overhaul, was an adventure. The two rooms for the eight of us were tiny and Spartan in amenities. The sign on the door to the communal bath asking people not to roam the halls in the nude made us laugh. The night's rest began late thanks to an out of control tour group which management was unable to get under control. Sleep was fitful at best, augmented by loud Chinese and Spanish women "communicating" in their bathrooms with the doors wide open and banging around a lot. Breakfast was chaotic thanks to the aforementioned Spanish tour group. Thankfully, it was also free. Dear Hostel - put door closers on the bathroom doors. Fix your lifts. Get people with balls on your management soon. Guests want to sleep, not be kept up all night by juveniles celebrating their escape from parental supervision.

My stay here was overall very good. The service was great and location was wonderful. My only complaint is that my room smelled absolutely atrocious making sleeping basically unbearable. If I stayed here again I would want to be in the female dorm, not the mixed dorm and if the smell was the same than I would just know it is the hostel and not the people but for this recent trip I blame the smell on the others who stayed in the same room as me.
