I would recommend this hostel without hesitation! Cheap and cheerful!

Liked: nothing - i never felt comfortable at that place

Disliked: that was the worst hostel i have ever stayed in!! - kitchen was incredibly dirty, there are NO pots, NO plates, NO cutlery - the toast served for breakfast was MOULDY - bathrooms were DIRTY (seems like they were never really cleaned) - every night there was loud music from the bar downstairs and drunk people all around in the hostel (who had to come in our room like all the time for talking stupid nonsense) - ugly neighbourhood (it takes you an hour to walk to the city centre)

Easy to find, easy to live, many people to speack with - fully fully recommanded if you are a backpacker :) We will come back

Disliked: Boys' bathroom not so clean (my boyfriend said) but that should be the fault of the other guests... Interent at the 3rd floor doesn't work so well, but at the 1st fl it's ok; quite basic breackfast

Disliked: A bit noisy but that's to be expected above a pub. Ear plugs solved that!
