Liked: Wifi in the dorm rooms is excellent. The staff are very helpful and made sure my lost luggage from my flight arrived safe and sound at reception. Great central location, a short walk from the train station.

Disliked: It can't be helped, but there are some shady characters in the area. Mainly just junkies asking for money. So going outside for a smoke can be a pain in the ass.

Liked: In all honesty the hostel is fine. I read mixed reviews. Yes it could be a little cleaner but I have definitely stayed at worse places, some people exaggerate a lot on this. Atmosphere was really good. Nice bar and restaurant. Location couldn't be better, good nightlife downstairs and around the area. Good kitchen facilitates and a decent living room/common area to hang out. Staff are really helpful and friendly.

Disliked: Bathrooms could do with a refurbish but as a traveler I didn't find them that bad.Can be a bit noisy but again for me it wasn't a problem.

Liked: Not much to be very honest.The breakfast was good value.

Disliked: I think most ,if any investment has been dedicated to the bar first accommodation a poor second.The rooms are filthy, when we checked in the bed was unmade,there was food left on the floor and the bin was full.To top it off both ladies toilets flooded and when I went to the floor below these were also flooded and the ceiling was leaking from the bathroom above. Naturally with toilet water all over the place I didn't use any of the showers,so with no toilet or shower facilities I was extremely eager to leave ASAP.
