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.

Liked: great hostel to stay in. i was impressed how clean it was, esp the bathrooms. stayed in a 10-bd female dorm that was comfy, bright, and in a good sized room (for that amt of beds). staff was super friendly and helpful. even though check-in was at 3:30pm, i showed up early, and was allowed to use a locker (bring your own lock though). lounge area has a pool table, computers with internet (for a fee), and is conducive for socializing, as long as ppl aren't always on their laptops! wifi worked well in the dorm room too. other pluses: good location=walking distance to a lot of places/sights/subway. and they have hair dryers available in the bathroom (free).

Disliked: only thing that wasn't so great was my bed was right next to the AC unit; it was pretty loud when on.
