Liked: It's a good hostel, the position is superb. Also nice breakfast, although not particularly fancy. But it is abundant and cheap.

Disliked: Very crowded, also late at night there's was a fight between some drunk guest that woke us up and kept on going for a while without the staff intervening before half a hour or so.Rooms have no air con, so because it was hot we had to leave windows open to the yard, where in the morning people have breakfast, so we were woken up. Bring earplugs and that's a non issue.

Liked: Great location, helpful staff. Nice bar and good atmosphere. I was travelling alone, but I found it easy to meet people here. The room was clean and the place felt secure.

Disliked: There weren't many showers, so there was often a wait in the mornings, but overall this was a minor complaint.

Liked: Cleanliness

Disliked: There were a lot of house rules such as not being able to buy your own alcohol. As a traveller one tries to save every penny and so this was a bit of a hindrance. Furthermore the outside smoking area closed quite early which is understandable but it did change the night time vibe for the worse.

Liked: Great. For ten euros for night wr got a comfortable bed with clean sheets in the big dorm, but all the other travellers were very polite, none was even talking in the dorm, so I slept like a baby. The bathroom was clean and nice also with a hairdryer and a soap, tailet nice, kitchen and fridge available. Presonal nice and helpful. In the evening music on the bar. Lockers and internet for free. I enjoyed stay in HoG Hostel.

Liked: The computers/printer in common area is great! Also, having a keycard for room/hostel entry makes it feel much safer.

Disliked: The common area smelt too smoky. Also, they didn't offer all girls dorm rooms.
