Liked: Very friendly and helpful staff. The bar was quite nice aswel.

Disliked: We weren´t told that the hostel is infected by cockroaches and ants, we figured that out ourselfs when we saw them crawling over the wall. You can understand that we found that quite discusting and a very unpleasant suprise. The food was ok but certainly not great.

Liked: I liked that the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: I disliked that in the largest dorm room there were no individual lights so when one girl wanted to read her book until 1am the rest of the dorm had to try to sleep with the lights on. There is also no enough common areas for people to socialise in, several girls spent the entire night talking very loudly in our room as they had no where else to go.
