Liked: The location was good. Really friendly women working there.

Disliked: There is currently a lot of refurbishment work going on so it was rather chaotic and very limited size common areas for a big hostel. The builders really took over the place. There was a lot of noise even at night.

Liked: The friendliness of the reception staff

Disliked: Miserable conditions for a dorm stay, ultra packed, rooms without real windows, it looks more like a cave for storing boxes or beers rather than a "room" for humans. Super tiny bed place, you better be short and fit. Kitchen smells grilled bacon continuosly, disgusting. Dozens of doors and every meters, narrow corridors, prison feeling. Showers without any possibility to chose the temperature, only one button for on/off. Looks like a money factory for the owners to suck your cash and offer the less possible
