Liked: This place is excellent. The people are more than willing to help you with an query or advice. The facilities are excellent with lots to keep you entertained in side the hostel & plenty of recommendations for in & around the city. The cleanliness was as good as a hotel & our private room was perfect.

Disliked: The fact that we stayed when the weather was very warm, meant that we had to have our window open to stay cool on the night. But the fact that the hostel is located on the cross roads meant that it was very noisy & ear plugs were needed. The whole hostel would benefit from having air conditioning!

Liked: This is just the best hostel I've ever stayed. I was traveling through Europe with a friend mainly with the objective of visiting new places, meeting people and having fun without expending too much money. The things that we liked the most were: 1. Location: Excellent, you can walk from here to anywhere, have a Metro station across the street, places for having lunch/dinner close, etc 2. The building & rooms: it seems that is new, or has recently been refurbished. The rooms are huge, you don't feel like a sardine, great view from the windows, bathrooms are clean. It all seems like it was opened yesterday and you are the first guest there 3. Staff: really helpful, always trying to help and to recommend things to do-visit 4. Cafeteria/bar: the breakfast area, it was excellent for any time of the day 5. Lounge: where to sit and relax

Disliked: I loved everything, just for thinking in how this could become even better I would say a common kitchen, for people that would like to cook at night, and also use that area as a place for meeting people.
