Liked: In a good state of decoration and cleanliness. Staff were helpful.

Disliked: Dorm room was very small, and perhaps the most uncomfortable hostel bed I've ever (not) slept in.

Liked: Clean and neat, nice and well-equipped kitchen, not far from the centre, very friendly staff.

Disliked: They charge for the use of internet if you are not a member, and it is way overpriced. We forgot to bring proper plugs for our chargers and they could only give those for money too.

Liked: I felt safe and the common room was a good place to relax with fellow travellers. The beds were comfortable and the building was very clean. Great for foreign visitors because the rooms had historical information included.

Disliked: The showers were far from the bedrooms. Free breakfast would have been preferred.
