Liked: bbb

Disliked: We had booked a double room, which was located to the reception area. It was extremely loud (people listening to loud music, people talking loudly, trucks passing by all night etc.). We kindly asked the staff if we could get another room but they said it was not possible because they were fully booked. People were checking in and out of the hostel all the time (and we were staying there for 5 days), so it seemed quite rude of the receptionists not to take our complain seriously.

Liked: I stayed at a female dorm, and I really liked that its so privat, though you live 8+ girls in the room. The bed is really nice and closed so you feel the privacy.. The room has its own kitchen and bathroom, really nice!

Disliked: The wifi can vary a bit in the rooms. Somewhere in room 6, there is no wifi to reach. The cleaning could be better, but it's still clean here, and for sure in the good end :)

Liked: Great atmosphere and people. Overall pretty clean, thick mattresses, pool. Quieter at night than other hostels for the most part.

Disliked: Horrible internet. Rarely works in the evenings which makes trip planning and job hunting incredibly difficult. No free lockers to secure valuables. A little far from the CBD.

Liked: The staff are really friendly, helpful for all your question, free wifi, big living room with a lot of couch and tv, garden with swimming pool, perfect to chill, have a tchat, or organise your next trip! This is not a factory of backpackers, you feel like at home! It´s a valuable place, next time I'll go back to this hostel.

Disliked: 5 min walking distance to the city, but it´s healthy to walk ;)

Liked: Convenient, pretty quiet at night, clean, bed was comfortable

Disliked: the light in my room wouldn't stay on, it would just flash. probably just my room. also a lot of the kitchen appliances were either difficult to use or didn't work.
