Liked: Super clean and organized

Disliked: a bit of a party hostel, which isn't really my thing - still my room was more than quiet enough to have a good sleep.

Liked: I liked the cleanliness and the overall feel to the building. Although it was a large hostel, it didn't feel it once you got to your floor. It was bright and well finished. The internet access was good and the staff were super friendly!

Disliked: The noise levels were pretty bad. It is a central hostel so to be expected.

Liked: The bathrooms are big. The ground floor is cosy, but there's nowhere else on the floors to sit.

Disliked: The kitchen is a bit to busy! Not that clean either.. Only one lamp in the room! My 4 pers female dorm was a mess! Seems like it had been a while since someone cleaned it! Wii is expensive - 10 $ for 24 hours..

Liked: Good security free vouchers friendly staff Good location - just off the free bus route Bar underneath which offers good deals on food and drink

Disliked: Kitchen was disgusting, granted not all down to the hostel but the guests as well, however bins were overflowing, fridges were dirty, flies all around the dry food boxes. Bathrooms were a good size but the bins were overflowing every night and first thing in the morning We never saw a cleaner at work whilst we were there. Part of the vouchers were for Travel Up but the desk isn't open at weekends so we couldn't get the money off.
