Liked: The staff was very helpful and friendly, lots of plus for the free breakfast and wi-fi.

Disliked: Wi-fi worked quite poorly, our room was moldy, downstair toilets didn't have locks and they were very dirty, even though everything was cleaned daily but I guess other visitors weren't to tidy , since men and women used the same toilets.

Liked: the hostel has a very friendly atmosphere, the kitchen and the bathrooms were clean, the breakfast was really good (eggs& cheese!) & the wifi was also free and my room even had a balcony, what more can you ask for?:)

Disliked: the wifi is quite slow! and sometimes it's not working at all, but there are computers downstairs that are also free to use...also too few pots in the kitchen; but you can always find something to complain about...
