Liked: The receptionists were very helpful, they carried my heavy suitcase upstairs on the day of my arrival and downstairs on my last day (42 stairs ! ). Washing up was done by visitors and checked by the receptionists regularly, which was not common in the hostel I stayed at last year.

Disliked: There should be one more shower.

Liked: Really nice stuff and warmly atmosphere in the hostel itself.

Disliked: If you have a light sleep take earplugs with you or get them in the hostel. A bar is close and it can be noisy (it didn't disturb me but my roommate)

Liked: It was in an excellent location, staff were helpful and friendly.

Disliked: The cigarette smoke from the 'smoking room' often drifted down the hall, concerning for those who don't smoke.

Liked: It's near to the city centre, they give you free earplugs (what you need for the sound from the bars outside), the bathrooms are good enough. There is a place where you can sit and chill out.

Disliked: 1) I arrived at 2 o'clock at the hostel. I know about the office times till 11am and after 3pm. But the staff member didn't even open the door to put down my luggage. So I had to wait till three in a park nearby. 2) one of the staff members was really wonderful, but the younger staff members where really annoying. The only thing they wanted to do was get drunk and they ignored people who won't do that. Even when the people were sitting next to them. I was lucky that there were two other people who wouldn't get drunk and I had a great time with them, but that was not because of this staff members!
