Liked: Lovely guests. Kitchen was probably the best I've seen so far. The room we had was fine too. Loved that there was a free ride from the airport to the location and that the hostel itself had special offers on touristic activities.

Disliked: Didn't feel like the lockers were safe enough. The staff member that was selling deals really seemed like he didn't care at all.

Liked: The staff were super friendly and the main reception area had good vibes! The cost was extremely cheap value for money I would definitely recommend and stay there again had a con and the bed was comfortable and the recommend and stay there again had aircon, the bed was comfortable and the pillows were clean

Disliked: When checking inn the music was too loud at reception which made it hard for me to hear, the lift took far to long and was extremely slow, there is no ground bottom in one of the lifts yet 2 level 3 buttons which make confusing.No towels an only half a roll of toilet paper and soap extremely old the paper rapper was disintegrated into the soap and the toilet didint stop running which made it hard to sleep

Liked: I loved the atmosphere at the hostel, the hanging out floor was amazing for meeting new people and having pre drinks, cooking etc. The location was very very good as well.

Disliked: Basically nothing worked... The elevators were broken all the time, our bathroom door didn't close, there were no lights in the bathroom, half of the stoves didn't work.. :D To be honest, I didn't mind cause I was only staying for a week, but that would probably be quite a problem for someone actually staying for a long time.
