Liked: Very clean.

Disliked: Noisy, beds extremely unconfortable, rooms in the basement with only narrow windows, majority of the other customers rude, noisy people coming in the room in the very middle of the night and chatting loudly, bad smell of bad cook in the hallways, ... it is a pity because the location is awesome. So just go anywhere else to enjoy it fully...

Liked: Location, cleanliness,pleasant service, posted information about weather and local travel services.

Disliked: Wifi, though advertised did not work at any location inthe hostel. This appeared to be the case not only with us but with everyone. Use of public computers expensive at $1 an hour, especially considering how slow they were and that wifi was not available. Outside area underutilized due to lack of furniture. No TV in private rooms.
