Liked: I loved this place. It is the best hostel I have ever been to. The staff is nice, helpful and always up for a laugh. The breakfast is fresh and plenty, the Bananabread is just wunderful, so be sure to give it a try! It is clean and safe, the kitchen is huge and has everything you will ever need. The bathrooms are clean and big. The rooms are nice, safe, clean and comfortable. You can ask for new sheets anytime. For me, this was the perfect hostel and one of the best weeks of my life. I would stay there again and again, given the chance, so I can really really recommend this hostel to anybody.

Disliked: Nothing. There is nothing to dislike.
