Liked: Only that it's cheap, really.

Disliked: I probably just booked the wrong hostel as it was nothing like I had expected. It was extremely different from all the hostels I had stayed in. However, I would first like to provide a disclaimer, it was probably not because the place was extremely bad, it was probably just me booking the wrong type of hostel; it was cheap and suitable for people who doesn't mind the environment. When I first arrive at slightly after midnight, the place felt like some workers' dormitory. Someone was already sleeping on the bed allocated to me. The place was dirty and dodgy. It wasn't the first time I stayed at a mixed dorm, but it was the first time I felt 'unsafe'. It was really dark, I had to use a torchlight, and someone slightly drunk I'd assume came walking in with a bottle of beer.

Liked: the kitchen is gud...although there it has 66 ed ad 32 bed dorms, the rooms are quit big so there is no suffocation inside and there is a lot of space to move around in the room

Disliked: they charge for everything, like bedsheet towel pillow ad linen. Also, the showers are in the basement, that means if u have a room on 1st floor, then also u will have to go to basment for showers

Liked: It wasnt too far out of centre of town, and if you're in a bigger group, it has a great grassed area out the front to hang out.

Disliked: The rooms looked like prison dorms, and there was only about 3 showers which shared a drain - so if you're in the bottom one you get the run off of all the showers coming in at your feet. You had to pay extra for everything, including bed sheets! Having said this, it's a bed, and realistically one doesn't need much more do they?
