Liked: Well set up and run by staff, access to suport and information and was made easy. Comfortable and inviting atmosphere with good facilities at the hostel. Manager Gabriell was more than accomidating and I found him proffessional dealing with different cultures, languages and backgrounds. Very impressed with my stay!

Disliked: Slight noise from acomidation on 1st floor but not bad enough to be an issue.

Liked: The property is well placed close to the Maritime Museum. Also, it is close to the main street and the port area and restaurants.

Disliked: The rooms were not upto the mark. The dorm beds were not clean (Including linens). The utensils provided in the kitchen were either broken or were too old and dirty to use. Staff was helpful but they tried to overcharge me for the tours. Which I found out when I booked the tours on my own.

Liked: Very nice hostel! The staff was very fun and helpful all the time. The main area was very cozy, warm and the atmosphere was relaxing and calm (good music too!). The 6 bed mixed dorm was very big and you had a very great view from the room. Big lockers. Nice facilities and clean.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Loved the open shared space., very cool. Staff couldn't do enough to help - really friendly folk!

Disliked: The kitchen was well-used and it was a bit tricky to get the space to prepare food at times. But all very friendly so not that much of a hardship - just start cooking early if you're hungry!

Liked: Nice breakfast - all make your own. Ingredients included eggs so was able to make nice scrambled eggs. Plus they let us have breakfast when we arrived at 8am on the first day which was a nice touch. Dorm beds were comfy, nice big lockers in room (bring your own lock). Showers were hot.

Disliked: Didn't let us into the room until exactly 1pm (check in time) but the common area was a nice place to rest until then.

Liked: Rooms were a great size. Even with 6 people in each room I didn't feel overcrowded. Also the kitchen and common areas were very nice.

Disliked: A lot of rules. Don't like the rule about alcohol from outside not being allowed in. Should be able to buy a beer for cheaper and drink it while you're eating dinner or just relaxing. Also the bathrooms were a little dirty but nothing that I couldn't handle.

Liked: The staff is awesome and the breakfast is really really good !!! The kitchen is well equipped and the public space invites u to stay longer and have some nice chats and beers with the backpackers...!! We were offerd a free washing due to booking by hostelbookers - really nice !
