Liked: We stayed in a double room which was very nice. Extremely clean, spacious, light and had a small balcony. The bed was comfortable and the room looked recently painted.The breakast was basic - toast, cereal, fruit, cheese & meat -but good value at only 3 euro.

Disliked: When I tried to ask a staff member about a walking tour we were planning to do (I wanted to know how to get to the start point) he just pointed to a sign on the counter advertising 'The Alternative Tour' and said that that was the only tour he knew anything about. Full stop. The reason that it is usually great to stay at hostels, even if you don't get much sleep, is that the staff are usually very helpful and happy to make recommendations and give directions. This hostel didn't have small maps available and the staff I encountered were definitely not overly helpful.

Liked: the location was in between everything - for culture during the day and nightlife. we all were able to get a room together and there was equipment available - eg iron, hairdryer etc

Disliked: sometimes the toilets weren't cleaned frequently and i felt a bit uneasy. In addition to this sometimes the showers were cold.

Liked: I liked the decor - all the floors are painted differently with well known characters - gave the place a nice feel. The breakfast in the morning is good too for 3 euros (buffet). I liked the little bar downstairs too, nice place to chill out.

Disliked: The hostel staff could have been friendlier - don't think they'd all heard of "service with a smile".

Liked: The atmosphere is pretty cool breakfast is 3 euro but is worth it.

Disliked: The only think i found very annoying and inconvenient was the fact that every time you step the wood floor will make noises so and the rooms for more that you tried to be quiet for those that were asleep he lockers and floor made a lot of noise.

Liked: great location! right next to the metro stop. the breakfast (not free, 3 euros) is pretty good too! better than what most hostels offer. it is wonderfully decorated! love all the sunflowers

Disliked: nothing against the hostel, but in the room i stayed in, the boys were dirty, smelly, and snored REALLY REALLY loud. i could not sleep and wanted to punch them in the face.
