Liked: Location.

Disliked: Overcrowded hostel with extremely unfriendly and mostly unavailable staff. The day I checked in many people were complaining about lost cameras and ATM cards stolen from Hostel locker. A deposit of 10 Euros was taken for the room key. Bath was unclean and flooded. Very noisy. Rip-off.

Liked: Friendly helpful staff. The fact that it has cooking facilities and is very close to Lidl supermarket, so this keeps the costs down. It is close to a train station which is great for getting about. Plenty of hot water and showers. Toilets, wash basins and showers are nice and clean. The warden left a letter stuck on the door telling me which was our room, as the office had closed. I appreciated this.

Disliked: People not doing their washing up in the kitchen. People letting other people into the hostel who were not staying there... this meant that my luggage was ransacked and my clothes strewn all over the floor. I didn't leave anything valuable in it so the thieves were disappointed because all they found was a load of old clothes and dirty washing! It was embarrassing though finding my privacy invaded. Although the showers and toilets were lovely and clean, the plumbing in the first floor shower room needs attention as dirty water leaks out onto the floor leaving a puddle.

Liked: It was quite cheap and I really liked the neighborhood, the concierge was also very very friendly.

Disliked: The cleanliness of the rooms was fine but the bathrooms/showers were pretty filthy. Also i was very upset that check in was supposed to be 9 pm at the latest, and 4 very rude loud girls were checked in past 12 am one night, otherwise it was a good experience.

Liked: There's a kitchen, 3 computers, and halfway decent wifi.

Disliked: The staff made me feel very unwanted and uncomfortable, so much so that I decided to switch to another hostel. I've never felt compelled to write a review before now, but this was by far my worst experience. Basically, the hostel told me that because I wanted to book on a night by night basis, they didn't want me to stay there at all because it was too much of a hastle for them and that they prefer to have people who essentially "stay for months" and "cook for the staff." WTF? From the moment I walked in, I could tell that something was off here. Boss was always rude. Definitely something off about this place. Avoid it!
