Liked: Some of the staff were friendly and nice. It looked like they had lots of activities for their guests (pub crawls, trips, tours, etc.) Free towels and breakfast was also a plus.

Disliked: For a hostel which has won rewards, the standard wasn´t great at all. Maybe we're used to the hostels in Europe, but it didn't feel very clean (specially some of the bathrooms). We also booked a female dorm with private bathroom but the last night there were to men styaing in the room ( we didn't really mind, but just out of principle - it was supposed to be a female dorm) and there wasn't any private bathroom to be seen near the room at least.

Liked: The atmosphere and friendliness exuded from this hostel. I loved the chats outside in the evening. I was made to feel most welcome even though I´m 60 years old. Nobody made me feel uncomfortable and the staff included me in a non-patronising way.

Disliked: Nothing
