Liked: Ein sehr gutes Hostel mit einem super Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis! Das Personal ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit und die Lage ist perfekt, da man von hier alles zu Fuß oder mit Bus und Metro erreichen kann. Auch von beiden Flughäfen ist das Hostel mit der Metro Linie 2 (Platz des Volkes, Ausgang 11) sehr gut zu erreichen!

Disliked: Da gibt es nichts!

Liked: Location, staff friendliness and assistance.

Disliked: I stayed on an 8 bed form where I was awoken every night by inconsiderate dorm mates who thought nothing about putting on the light or slamming the door. The drawback I guess for such a large dorm!

Liked: Location cannot be beaten

Disliked: Some, not all of the staff, were pretty rude, unhelpful and tried to rip make some extra cash on the "side" whenever possible. On catching my cab to the aiport the guy watching the night desk tried to extort money before letting me leave. Great start to my day.

Liked: Location and price was great - only having 6 beds in a dorm was good too.

Disliked: Everyone sort of kept to themselves - not overly 'friendly'. Directions to the hostel weren't completely accurate - the exit from the People's Square metro was exit 12, not directed as on the site.
