Liked: Everything that was not bad, was average. Maybe the only good thing is they have a shower you can use even after the checkout.

Disliked: We stayed at 2 rooms, I think 71 or 72 and 75, the first one (71 or 72) was really bad. The mattresses were probably the worse I've ever used (I had to sleep in the floor one night). The toilet was clean but super smelly (there is natural light but no window), the shower curtain didn't go all the way down, so the floor got wet, and there was no drain or anything to dry it.The other room, 75, was OK, exact same structure, but a decent shower curtain (the shower head was broken though), not so smelly toilet, decent mattresses.So I guess your experience can vary a lot depending on in which room you stay.

Liked: It is a new modern property. The standard of the rooms, particularly the bathrooms is excellent

Disliked: Due to theft and damage there is no cutlery in the kitchen. If you cater for yourself you have to pay a deposit and get cutlery from reception

Liked: The building is really pretty and has a nice design. The hostel is able to organise trips and buses for you. The staff, at times, can be helpful.

Disliked: I read previous reviews and thought "who cares about breakfast?" but when you're paying £10 a night for a dorm and you're getting up at 6.30am to visit a glacier, nasty coffee and stale bread do not cut it. The breakfast (or lack of) really lets this place down. The wifi was also rubbish and rarely worked.
