Liked: Croissants! Bar! Powerpoints! City! Fun! Great Place to Meet People!

Disliked: should be able to have breakfast when you arrive, should include fruit or cheese/protein at breakfast (not just sugar) Toilet rolls and paper towels always seemed empty in lobby bathroom. some maintenance issues on the basement level. 10am breakfast cut-off in a 'party city' Should have a better understanding of TOURS and more information on their free ones, perhaps organise one with a tour company at a special rate for the hostel. sometimes people who have been on the move travelling for a long time, just want to be told what they should not miss and a bit of history to get an understanding of the city... "just look around" is sometimes daunting.

Liked: It was a very clean and spacious room (private ensuite) and there were very friendly people at the desk. There was a nice atmosphere and a variety of food at breakfast. The location was also fine, especially since we were travelling by greyhound which is next door. It was like a hotel, but only more cozy. I would definitely recommend it to others, since it was certainly one of the best hostels I have ever visited.

Disliked: The only thing one could dislike is the fact that it is next to the bus terminal (also a plus when you travel by bus) so that there is some traffic noise. It didn't bother us, but if you have difficulty sleeping, this could be annoying.

Liked: Staff are amazingly friendly and very accommodating, bathroom in each room.

Disliked: Metal bunk beds creak a lot at night when you shift your position, and the support bar in the middle of the bed makes sleeping on your back uncomfortable, though these are minor issues.

Liked: live music and free food on Fridays, location, location, location, everybody's crazy (in a good way), it's super clean and I love the new backyard terrace, ensuite bathrooms, separate TV-lounge

Disliked: for some reason the lobby is totally over-heated (26-27°C), it's always a bit noisy due to AC and the bus station close by, why the... is there only strawberry jam for breakfast (and that since last year)???? and the prices on the websites are without tax, so there is always a surprise at check-in

Liked: Perfect location could not have been easier to get to from the bus station and Berri Metro stop. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms linens were clean, and TV and free towels were a nice perk! Breakfast was better than at most places with orange juice, eggs, muffins, pancakes and free coffee - all day long!

Disliked: I cannot think of anything I disliked at this hostel!

Liked: Everything. Location steps from bus station was helpful for us. Dorms really well thought out - the little touches make it so much more enjoyable. Each bed has pen light, little powerbar for charging your important things, little basket attached to bed for holding important things. Bathrooms very clean, room very clean, beds well spaced from each other, plenty of head room for top bunk. Lounge area comfortable and spacious, with loads of books, payphone, information, flat screen, etc. This is a fantastic hostel, very impressed. Would stay here again.

Disliked: Only issue - the toilet flush handle was a bit finicky. But worked.

Disliked: the hostel has a central location, being very close to the metro station Berri and to the bus central station, but on the other hand is also very close to a park in which I wouldn't feel safe at night.

Liked: Great breakfast: Muffins, croissants, pancakes, eggs, juice, coffee and tea. Free linens and towels. Strong wifi connection.

Disliked: They advertised street parking available outside hostel, but that's not actually the case. If you bring a car you'll have to pay an extra $10 per night and park your car about 5 blocks away in another hotel's lot.

Liked: friendly staff and there is always something going on every day and you are welcomed to join (pub crawl, city tour, ...) breakfast is good!

Disliked: i made one booking, but had to change rooms - first night was perfekt - second night not: * moving was annoying * airconditioning was too cold (got sick) * room was in the cellar (to dark) - make sure your get a room upstairs and your experience at this hostel will definitely be a good one!
