Liked: Amazingly clean with a great atmosphere and lots of travel help

Disliked: Nothing against the Staff- I'm sure their all fantastic, but we unfortunately caught a member on a bad day, and dealing with her hangover, took almost an hour to check us in.

Liked: Friendly staff. Big common area.

Disliked: Note -- this is NOT a Hosteling International affiliate (despite advertising conspicuously otherwise). So don't ask for the member discount. They won't honor it. Also, they pump loud music from morning to night throughout common areas. In reception sometimes it's so loud they have to shout like fishmongers at the clients to be understood. Everyone has to raise their voice to have a conversation, compounding the problem. We all have our own music these days and our heads would not explode with a little silence now and then. Aside from these two complaints, it's a pretty good hostel.

Liked: Friendly staff and good for booking tours through the hostel. Decent sized kitchen. A bigger hostel so it could be good or bad for solo travelers but there are plenty of people you can meet in the common areas. The common areas are nice and big!

Disliked: Facilities are not the cleanest. Kitchen does not have adequate cooking equipment or enough space for the many travelers the hostel holds. There are absolutely no power outlets in the room and only a few to be found in the common areas that you would be lucky to get to after waiting hours for others to charge their phones, laptops, portable chargers, etc. The location is a 20 min walk from the center and not ideal. The use of one shared key between all the guests in one room can get a bit frustrating as people tend to hold onto the key and you have to go looking for it either at the desk or in the common areas amongs other guests. I would say there are probably better options out there for hostels.
