Liked: toasts at breakfastthe clientele (you can meet nice people from all over the world)location of the hostelthe security thanks among others to the security guy at night.

Disliked: It's not about property, but the water in the showers are far too hot, it's so hot that it's dangerous for health. If it's made on purpose to make people take "short" showers because they can bear boiling water when they take a shower, I would honnestly prefer cold water.

Liked: Very cool place. I liked the beds with the built-in lockers and lights. Nice kitchen area.

Disliked: Luggage room too small for a place of that size. Breakfast could really use either peanut butter or nutella to go with the toast...something that will stick to your ribs a little bit more. Jam and butter will only carry you so far.

Liked: We liked the layout of the hostel, the graffity, the paintjobs and the kitchen was spacious and clean. STaff was really helpful. We loved the bar downstairs!

Disliked: it was very hot. At first we stayed in a "cellroom" (which was depicted a bit bigger than it really was) the ventilation in this room was nihil. We could not open a window for some fresh air or a cool draft. The breakfast area was also really toasty.
