Liked: The location is excellent, just a few blocks from the Latin Quarter and right near the bus station, which is convenient for leaving your luggage while you walk around the city. Although staying near the Latin Quarter might not sound safe, I felt the location and area definitely seemed safe. The staff was really friendly and helpful and the rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean.

Disliked: The only real draw back was there was not too much common space and that there were only two computers to use.

Liked: Good breakfast if you like sweet stuff (some cereal would be good too!).

Disliked: There aren't enough showers. You only have the one shower in the ensuite in your room which means you have to wait around for a while before you get your turn. You can't use the washing facilities to do your own washing in drying. However there is a service provided which costs $10 for a bag.

Liked: great for meeting people! great rooms! GREAT HOSTEL, GREAT PEOPLE, GREAT STAFF, GREAT CITY, GREAT BEER! - Love IT! Full of power points! - AWESOME!

Disliked: Fix the bathroom floor in room 22....always brown and muddy. Other than that FANTASTIC!!!!! Also would be good to add some more 'tours' and some more information to the tour...rather than just a long stroll. Less anal about Breakfast when you are waiting to check in (there is always left overs) Breakfast a little early.... its sooo good, but after a big night out most nights - very hard

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.
