Liked: They have realy helpfull staff, hostel is really cheap, best place to meet other people from all around the world! good news for smokers, they have a balcony on each floor so you dont need to go outside for a smoke. Hostel is very close to train and coach station.

Disliked: There is not much, but for someone it would be far to the center, The intenet conection is good but not stable. you can meet lot of junkies and homeless people in this part of town, but I have no problem with them.
