Liked: I liked the variety of common spaces to hang out in, such as communal kitchen and tv room.

Disliked: The internet didn't work in our room on floor three. The window didn't open well and it became very hot and smelly in there.

The property's response is

Hi - apologies about the window - thanks for pointing it out. Will also try to remedy the wi-fi issues on the top floor asap

Liked: Location was decent. 8 euros to get your laundry done over night.

Disliked: I've stayed in a lot of hostels and I would rank this as the worse hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff were incredibly rude! They walked in to the "living room" twice and to the kitchen once (in the space of 5 hours) and started yelling at everyone in the room about how the kitchen was so messy and they were just going to lock it up. The problem I had with this as it was not in a pleasant manner and made a lot of people, particularly females, feel uncomfortable. Furthermore, the bunks were old, squeaked and were extremely uncomfortable.
