Liked: Nothing

Disliked: He rooms were over crowded, the place was filthy and disgusting. The bathrooms were not cleaned regularly. The staff was not helpful. The location was terrible if you're trying to go out in the city. We cabbed everywhere. It was horrible, probably one of the worst experiences I've had in a hostel

Liked: Great location, no need for car or bus, short walk (15 minutes) to the centre. We had lovely room mates so we were lucky :) we loved our stay here and would definitely recommend this hostel. There was no issue with noise. Lovely clean crisp white sheets too!

Liked: Nice old building, sink outside the ensuite, pleasant big dining area to use computers.

Disliked: Staff were efficient but it would cost them little to be friendlier and more welcoming. This is a factor that puts some other hostels on my favorites list.

Disliked: The manager was on facebook instead of helping me out with a request. I've never seen that before! Very rude also! The rest of the employee were more helpful but always on their phone.
