Johanne Valois thinks…

Liked: Great value for money, lots of common areas, clean, generally quiet.

Disliked: Although the location was perfect for the purpose of my trip (visiting family), it'd probably be a bit far from the city centre for my liking if I wanted to sightsee.

Liked: Staff always very helpful with any questions I had. Also, the rooftop area had a great view.

Disliked: There only being one moderately sized kitchen for the whole hostel to use and within that some of the stoves didn't work. Also, there seemed to be a fair few families around and the average age of those staying seemed to be 30+ when ideally I was looking for a younger focused place.
