Liked: The location was alright.

Disliked: The hostel is in a really old, dirty building. The rooms were dirty and smelled like mold. The bathrooms were really bad and never got cleaned. There's not much of a common area other than the kitchen. The elevator is extremely slow with 13 floors. One morning someone came into the room to fix a speaker at 8:00am, woke everyone up and actually kicked people out of bed to do so. That could have definitely been done at a more appropriate time.
