Liked: Free pancake breakfast! Can't go wrong with that

Disliked: It's a big popular place, so if you want it quiet, it's hard to find some peace.

Liked: The staff (wearing a black T-shirt) was friendly and she served a free pasta.

Disliked: Some people were playing the guitar and signing songs very loudly around 1:30am, so I could not sleep there at all. It was a great music, but they should have been considerate to others who were sleeping at least after midnight.

Liked: it is very central to everything-restaurants, stores, subway. The hostel is informative with all the information and brochures needed.

Disliked: It was noisy on saturday night. Be prepared to wear ear plugs if you stay on the weekend. Also the shower on the floor was cold. There are many showers in the building so you can switch.

Liked: Several really cosy common areas. Big and spacious. Perfect location. Lockers in rooms, as well as huge (free) lockers for your big backpack down in the basement if you want to store it for a few hours upon checking out. Nice pancake breakfast, cheap coffee (free between 7AM and 11AM). Nice staff, well organised.

Disliked: Kitchen a little small considering the amount of people staying there. Also they should point out that it is possible to walk from the bus station to the hostel (takes 12min) instead of taking the recommended bus+streetcar (the first bus is completely unnecessary, as the distance covered is walkable in 3min). Good to know if you're on a budget!

Liked: A great joint. They take great pride in running the place and keeping it continuously clean. It gets very busy which is fantastic if you're outgoing and want to socialise, plus there are events planned for each night.

Disliked: It can be a little loud and busy in the common areas, but otherwise 100% great.
