The superb atmosphere! Kex is an old factory and they certainly did their really best to preserve the retro feeling.

We loved Kex hostel! Clean rooms, lots of bathroom/shower options. Outstanding food &&& bar downstairs. Really welcoming atmosphere and we really enjoyed our stay here! We were able to walk to a local pastry shop and get around on public bus system right from Kex hostel.

Great atmosphere, they have a really cool bar and cooking area with jazz nights on Tuesday that draws in a large local crowd. Lot&'s of friendly travellers with plenty of common areas to hang out in. Excellent location, can walk most places inside the city inside 10 mins.
