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.
