Liked: This hostel is bright, airy and modern. Great for a short term stay, Location is excellent. Great value for money

Disliked: The staff are quite slow and a bit vague on details about places to see etc. There was also a mix up with our booking which they could not fix until the second night of our stay. Having said that they did compensate us with a bottle of wine!
