Liked: Very clean. Good character in dining area but lacked atmosphere... maybe cause it was quiet?Loved the free continental breakfast.

Disliked: Noisy lift machine equipment and hand dryer in communal bathroom meant we kept getting woken through the night (room 300). Recommend asking for room away from lift area. Would be good if hostel put paper towels in bathrooms so people don't get woken up.

Liked: Great people, staff and guests. Really lovely.

Liked: The communal areas were cool but that's about it sadly.

Disliked: It was over priced, noisy (had to sleep with eat plugs, which they sell by the door as you walk in, never a good sign), we could hear the lift going up & down all night long. There was a window above the door letting loads of light in & the breakfast was terrible.

Liked: Its effecient. Clean, proper, no nudes in the hallway, no drug addicts on the stairs or pimps holding up posters of their girls, no police calls or ambulances crashing into bins, no drag queens telling their stories or orphan kids looking for a break, no pineapple girls or wild chicken dancing around cats, no isolated areas for the insane, no butter on toast, no taoist monks, no birth control in toilets or large mouse holes, no gnomes in the garden staging a protest at inadequate working conditions, no tigers in the grass watching 3d tv. no piles of stones with flags in them, no prehistoric monument to dinosaurs, no big plastic breast convention, no doodles of the virgin mary in a lingerie in hollywood boulavard with jesus on a baby leash, in the washrooms, no crimes - its a great hostel and if your a flawless human being youll fit in here incredibly.

Disliked: As i slept a kangarro came in, fell over my bed pissed drunk saying " save Australia" "the whites are normal and are making the world normal" it was a scot in a costume. the corridor gets narrow and you get stuck. im still there. two days now.the kitchen is in a hoebox and the bread is on the roof.santa claus stays here and the elves. they live in 30 bed dorm and every night, they are up talking in finnish. my finnish friends tell me they have link with the mafia. anytime you meet an elf on the stairs he tries to sell you weed.
