Liked: Great comfortable beds and pillows, terrific showers and an overall very clean environment. Location is quite good as well, 4 metro stops to center or a 30 minute walk. The bar/cafe offered cheap prices as well.

Disliked: Not too much of a social atmosphere. Never more than 1 or 2 others in the lounge so it's definitely a hostel for peace and quiet which is good for some people. It could have just been because of the time that I was there though
