"The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel itself was full of character and would be perfect for the summer months. Great location close to West Lake."

Liked: The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel itself was full of character and would be perfect for the summer months. Great location close to West Lake.

Disliked: The hostel was a little hard to find at first. Very cold and not much central heating. Not very many staff members could speak English.

Liked: The staff are super friendly and helpful. The location feels safe, though it is quite out of the way. The bar is alright, though there is limited food and it isn't that cheap. The price for the bed is unbeatable.

Disliked: The shower was terrible, right next to the squat toilet (it didn't have a plug, the water, such as it was, just drained into the toilet). The spray from the shower was literally just a few pathetic drips, very hard to wash under. It wasn't very clean either, but you get what you pay for I guess. The window didn't close in our room, so it was very cold at night (I had to sleep with my coat on). The wi-fi is also unsecure and very patchy, my laptop couldn't connect to it at all so I ended up connecting to the neighbour's wi-fi instead. The bed was super hard, a plank with a very thin padded covering. The hostel is too far away from the town and the lakeside, you have to get a bus out to it. I was glad I only stayed there one night.

Liked: very big hostel, well laid out with different areas to hangout. Nice rooms. I stayed in a dorm but had friends in one of the rooms which was really nice. there is a big variety of accomodation options. staff were accomodating and helpful, despite reception seeming to always be busy

Disliked: It is well located osuth of the lake, and is in a really nice area. however personally I would have preferred to stay somewhere more east or north of the lake were there was more to do at night.

Liked: Friendly staff, good value for money (self service breakfest buffet), 15-20 minutes to walk to West Lake. Nice location. Staff speak good English.

Disliked: We booked a "Budget Double with private bathroom". Private bathroom?! The toilet was located in the corner of the room, 2 meters away from the double bed, no walls in between...

Liked: This hostel was nice! Drinks and food in the bar were really good and atmosphere was very lovely. Staff was friendly, although Anyway, we spend some good days here!

Disliked: Tourist and transport information at the reception could be more complete. Transport from and to the hostel can be tricky, since busroutes to the train- and long-distance busstations are hard to figure out and take a long time!

Liked: Bonne ambiance, Bar et restaurant, casier fermant à clé. Cadre sympa dans les collines du sud du lac à coté du zoo. Le sud du lac est à 15 min à pieds

Disliked: L'accès est un peu difficile depuis la gare, il vaut mieux prendre un taxi.
