Liked: The staff were upbeat and helpful.

Disliked: The 12 bed dorm was very crowded. Moved to a 6 bed dorm the next night and liked that a lot better. Also when I first arrived there were dirty sheets on my bed. A bit of a turn off.

Liked: Great location and pretty good vibe. Daily clean in the rooms.

Disliked: The wifi was really unreliable and the staff didn't really seem to care or know how to fix it. There was no wifi in the rooms even though there were signs saying there was. At check in the staff didn't tell me where to get sheets or a towel, explain about breakfast or the bar, just pointed the direction to the room and that was it.
