Liked: paintings everywhere, really creative, friendly and helpfull stuff, breakfast free (not only toast!), nice veranda on the roof, air condition in the rooms, clean toilets and showers, lots of activities offered from the hostel, just a short walk away from the train station(2min), 30 min from the airport, lots of nightclubs and pubs around. if u stay 3 nights you get 15 drinks for free (in the city) and lots of vouchers. best coffee shop next door (cheap and great coffee, nice pastry), lots of backpacker hostels around, opportunity to meet lots of travellers
