Liked: This hostel is located only a few blocks from the main train station and close to the center of town. There are lots of places to eat and check out near by, The hostel is clean and the lockers are large. It is a real buy for the price.

Disliked: The use of the key card is good buy overdone for getting into the toilet and etc once you are into the hostel. Otherwise, it is fine. This is a small matter.

Liked: Free coffee and tea in the morning was a plus. It was also very safe,clean and the beds were very comfy with plenty of bathrooms.

Disliked: I can't really put my finger on why I didn't love it. I guess it doesn't have a very warm vibe. Everything is white, and the entrance hall is all bright techno lighting. I think it would be really great for a backpacker who loves to party, but just not very homely, almost a bit clinical.

Liked: Close to main train station

Disliked: This is not a female friendly hostel, there were no bins in the en-suite or general use toilets, the mixed shared showers were basically see through glass and the hostel is mostly male dominated. I would not recommend this hostel for a lone female traveller. Also the wifi was very slow most of the time. Also it needs an age limit our dorm was full of old men.

Liked: Good showers, clean, close to the turistical places and the train station.

Disliked: First, is not on the right side of the street, but on the LEFT. The atmosphere is a little annoying, looks like a night club, lights, decoration, etc. It's not cozy.

Liked: The set up on the bedrooms

Disliked: The unhelpfullness and un friendly staff! I have never experienced such rude staff. Things kept breaking - the showers the microwave and the wifi! The kitchen only has one facility to cook with an that broke! Our food got stolen and the atmospeare was terrible. Seems to be a huge party hostel at the weekend - the kitchen was a disgrace - and with what we could tell obly had one cleaner. Overall a terrible experience!

Liked: All the photos shown in the website of Hostelbookers have met the real state of the hostel. The hostel is newly furnished and extremely clean.

Disliked: I did not like the fact that for almost everything should be extra paid. For example a lamp for the bed. An breakfast, towel and so on. For the price that I have paid for one night i think I should receive at least one free of charge breakfast, not only a free coffee.

Liked: nice staff, rooms are really nice and clean as are the facilities.

Disliked: music is just a bit too loud in teh lobby and that blinking colour changing light was rather irretating. Check out it at 12 but the cleaning lady came in at 10 and despite me coming out off the showe in a towel she didnt feel whatsoever need to close the wide open door and clean my bed while I was still dressing.

03 September 2012 Rachel would recommend this property

Liked: Dorms gave as much privacy as possible, rooms had lockers and sinks in them.

Disliked: No soap in the toilets also you had to have your key card to go to the toilet even though mine could only be accessed by two dorms, and you had to have your keycard for any electricity to work in the room. Wifi was very slow in the rooms and only slightly beter in the lobby. The lobby looked like a club with neon lights everywhere, no where comfy to sit and relax.

Liked: It's really a great place, I was even surprised by it being so good.

Disliked: The central location also means it's noisy, at least the room I was in. so not for light sleepers - other than that I haven't found anything bad about the place.
