Liked: its own unique facilities, complete and its all what you needed in a hostel, center location to the city, worth the stay

Disliked: not enough socket plugs, bed's own privacy and lightings. Just in case you back to hostel late at night, you'll need a torch light to search for your own stuffs without disturbing other roomates

Liked: Good location!

Disliked: Our room wouldn't lock. I assume this is not normal though the staff were pretty helpful but didn't have the tools to fix the door. Aside from that the hostel was fine.

Liked: Great location with food and shopping nearby, historical dockyard atmosphere and nearby sights, elevator would have been a plus but was out of order while we where there. Great breakfast good price.

Disliked: This hostel allows hen and batchelor parties (many YHA's don't). Very loud on Saturday night, Sunday was much better.

Liked: It is an old building so has character from the outside but is modernised inside and offers several seating areas. I think because it is an old building the walls are thick stone and it seemed quite at night. It also has a good reception area where you can purchase hot or cold drinks.

Disliked: Squeaky floor boards on Level 5!

Liked: Heating was good and our dorm (5-bedder female) was very clean. Reception decor was nice and location was great (10-min walk to main shopping street)

Disliked: Shower kinda spurtedd everywhere and there was no shower curtain to lessen the spray. Aso, more hooks should be added in the shower to hang clothes

Liked: A stunning location and modern onteriors, helpful staff. Nice café bar at the hostel lobby, well equipped kitchen.

Disliked: Athough it was very cold outside, the heating wasn´t working. We were told at the reception that the heating "might be broken" but they couldn´t do anything about it "this late" (10pm) and couldn´t provide us with extra blankets because the hostel was fully booked and there were no blankets left. After being a serious pain in the ass, we got a heater for our room (from a helpful but slightly incompetent receptionist) and everything was all right. I can only imagine how people in other rooms must have been freezing that night.

Liked: Pretty much everything.. Hostel is on the great spot in the city centre near small port, rooms were perfectly clean, secure, staff was always helpful...

Disliked: Just one very minor thing - by default they give you one card (key) of the room for all people from one group staying in one room. Just ask for another caard (key) and you'll be fine. Otherwise everything was perfet :-)
