Liked: nice for young people in the middle of downtown

Disliked: I reserved a 10dorm bedroom through Hostelbookers, where it was available. When I got into the hostel I had to pay more than was on the website and only when I came to my room found out that it was a 6dorm bedroom. Would like to have been told beforehand at check-in.

Liked: The common rooms are big so you are not sitting on top of each other like other hostels i have been in. The staff are helpful and it is a good place to meet people.

Disliked: you cant sit in the cavern cafe if you have cooked your own food. when people have ordered from the cavern cafe they can sit in the dinning area which is meant for people who have cooked their own food but you cant go in the cavern cafe area. it is wrong. they are taking up the room.

Liked: The location

Disliked: Roomdoors are very noisy: hard to sleep when someone comes in. The heather is also noisy. My mattress was not flat, if you sleep on the side or on the front, you might have backpain in the morning... It's disapointing because the rest of the hostel is nice...

Liked: A very well organised group. Everyone always had answers to my questions and they just provide everything you could need.

Disliked: Some other visitors did not take others needs into consideration, but that could happen anywhere. It does get a bit too hot downstairs to be comfortable.
