Liked: It was pretty nice. The curtains around the beds are nice for when people need to turn the light on after you're trying to sleep. The guy at the desk was pretty friendly. There's free breakfast, so that's a plus.

Disliked: The bathrooms were kind of cramped and very busy early in the morning before checkout.

Liked: The people were my age, they had a big TV and couches to relax on and pool to play. Everyone was friendly and well-behaved.

Disliked: There were a lot of bag, bins and other miscellaneous things lining the walls, which didn't give the place a very tidy persona. I also wasn't impressed with the staff. Asking me to wait 5-10 minutes while you have a personal conversation doesn't sit well with me.

Liked: The beds are comfortable, the good thing about them was the curtains that avoid the light from coming through and made yourself comfortable beacause no body saw you sleeping or changing.

Disliked: The hostel is not safe but any means, while i was there they stole my friends i-phone and another girls computer.

Liked: They will store your bags for 1 pound. Great if like me you had a late flight out and still wanted to explore during the day without the hassel of dragging around your luggage.

Disliked: The rooms were really full because there is not enough room to put your luggage under the beds (and I only had small carry-ons). This meant that luggage was constantly everywhere - covering the entire floor. And with 15 people in a small room it was very tight.
