Liked: The meal vouchers were great. Big breakfasts or dinners to choose from. Great location and helpful staff.

Disliked: Not sure why but i didnt find it as easy as most places i have stayed to meet new people. Was not a major issue as i did meet some great people after a few days. That comes down to luck of the draw with regards to who is staying there more though i guess. All in all it was a top notch hostel that i would recommend to anyone.

Liked: The Cavern was pretty cool; the entire hostel had a nice vibe.

Disliked: Awkwardness regarding when is the appropriate time to switch off the lights in the room (it was a 10 person room but at 11pm there were still people who were actively up and in the room but others were in bed/almost sleeping).

Liked: I stayed at several hostels and this was one of the best. Good and clean bathrooms, very good location and very good food downstairs in the cavern. All the employees are friendly and helpful. I would go there again.

Disliked: the only thing that I disliked was the fact that we had to pay more than we expected because the price that HostelBookers shows you is not the endprice. You have to read the fine print and add a 10% fee on your price. That was the only dissappointing thing. But for the money you pay you really get something.
