Liked: Friendly and helpfull staffGood location of the hostel

Disliked: I was booked into a room with over 40 people. That makes it really hard to sleep at night. Because someone´s always making noise.The mattress was so weak that I was sleeping on the wood. I had back pain after those nights. There are no power outputs and lamps close to the bed. So you have to leave your cell phone somewhere in the room at night.

Disliked: A lot of. noise from the street and the common areas at night can be heard in the ground floor dorm. The door to this does not have a lock, though there are sizeable lockers.

Liked: Great location, clean rooms, huge kitchen, common area is also huge with a tv room, pool table, foosball table... It is obviously an older building but it's spacious and has eveything. There are signs up everywhere about events happening in and around town, stuff to get you involved with other people... the atmosphere was very quiet. I'm not a huge people person, and people kept to themselves, so single travellers might be a bit lonely. So yeah, great location, fully equipped. I was happy.

Disliked: The guy at reception didn't know much about places to eat around town, and we had to ask for a map of town... It would be nice to have kind of an intro to the city with reception pulling out a map and circling some places to check out. WIFI was pretty weak upstairs in the bedroom as well.
