Liked: Good enough for the price.Friendly and helperful staff.The kitchen is small so you have to wait for cooking and even for a cup of hot coffee.I was attacked by some unknown bugs during the nights there and awaked by a group of drunk guys at 3:30.But it's not the hostel's fault anyway.Thus,if I'm still on the budget I'll get back again.

Disliked: It would be nice to have more than one kettle.

Liked: All staff were friendly and helpful,moreover location was perfect.

Disliked: I stayed in a 6 female dom. One of girls is living there,not traveler,and she was so selfish. She used the room like own room. When I opened a curtain at 10:30am, she slammed it shut. I didn't have any light, because my bed light was broken. I will never sleep the bed any more because she makes me wake up many times by big body motions.they were like big earthquake!

Liked: the backpacker is pretty good, all that you need to travelling, good accomodation for a good value, near to the central station so you can go anywhere, moreover the rooms are very clean instead of the bathroom that is a little bit dirty but nothing too bad

Liked: Location is awesome! such a perfect location in the centre of the city, really close to bars, shops etc etc and 1 minute walk to central station.Staff are really friendly and helpful, bedrooms were really clean, and beds are comfortable.Showers are good. Has an elevator which is good for luggage.I have stayed at this hostel 4 times, and I couldn'd reccomend it more - such good value for money.

Disliked: Can be a bit noisy.

Liked: The LOCATION!!! Very convient and worth the price! Beside that, bed is simple. Stuff is very friendly, as i went with 4 friends, its better to take a cab (about $30) than taking the train to the city as it cost $15 for a ride back. overall, its quite a good backpacker place to stay.

Disliked: At night it can get a little too noisy from those drunkard dude.
