Liked: Nice Hostel, very clean, location outside the center but still in walking distance and next to the park. Lots of information for travelling. Good breakfast. Two computers with internet. Lockers. A little to much of a party place for me, always a lot of people around.

Liked: Had a problem with bugs in our room after it rained (common problem) Staff at reception were very helpful in getting it fixed asap. The owner of the hostel also apologised even though it wasn't a big deal, but there concern showed they were very efficient in keeping a good service.

Disliked: Constructions were going on in the hostel, so it was a bit noisy!
