Liked: Staff was quite friendly: it is the only thing i didn't dislike. The kitchen is pretty big but you can have dinner only in the patio, so if it's rainy you get washed!

Disliked: this hostel was old and dirty and smelled. It is unhealty for people to stay in places like this.

Liked: nice neighbourhood, if you like staying in nice and quiet area, but fairly nearby citycentre. For people who don't want the action and sounds of a busy city it's a nice place to stay

Disliked: 23.00 shutdown, not allowed staying out on the terrace. Felt like a boarding school. The building, rooms, bathrooms were not too clean. Kitchen was overall mess. I Had to share a room with old (over 50 years old) people, who slept through the day and went to bed early in the evening, so you never had a chance of sitting in your room, talking, phone whatever. Some of the staff were not too friendly, one (german?) girl actually quite rude If you want to go out, it's better to stay more down town. I could've known that

Liked: loved the quirky buildings and it had a brilliant atmosphere. room was huge and clean and the tv room is lovely and chilled

Disliked: none of the showers in our building had any running water so there was half a hostel full over people running around trying to find a working shower in the other building.... really bad when your running late or just want to be clean
