The Jollys' was really great, clean beds and mostly clean bathrooms, unfortunately we found some bugs in our room, but i think its usuall here. The diner deals are a good opportunity for a pricey meal and the deals for ever night going out are great! then you always got a good group and have to pay less fro drinks.

I do not know where to put it, but people complaining about the cleanliness should be aware that the staff does all they can to provide a clean hostel. If it is not clean this is a result of the guests being filthy. It should not be too much asked for to clean your own dishes properly.
