Liked: Rooms are quiet. Ok location

Disliked: No atmosphere. Staff not helpful and don't know the area. No equipment in kitchen which is also too small for the number of guests especially as the majority are long term residence of the hostel so its not really for travellers. Not a terrible hostel but there is probably better in the area

Liked: The beds were comfy.

Disliked: 99% of the staff were rude and unfriendly. We were not told of a cleaning time, the cleaner was extremely rude and told us to get out of our room. If we were told about a cleaning time we would have glandly not been in our room (as it smelt anyway). They also did not have a "wet floor" sign and my friend fell down the stairs. The cleaner knew about this and did not even apologize or check to see if she was okay. The wifi is extremely slow and keeps cutting in and out. Kitchen was small and did not have enough pots, pans and cutlery. The building had a funny "off" smell to it and the downstairs communal toilet was never cleaned properly and smelt of urine.

Liked: The hostel is situated in a beautiful building. The common areas are nice and comfy, the kitchen is a bit small but alright and there's a small courtyard for smoking. The bedroom we were in was spacious and the beds good. The bus stop is right in front of the hostel, and it's also one of the stops of the city sightseeing bus!

Disliked: It's a bit in the middle of nowhere. You have to take the bus to get to the city center, and outside of the hostel there's just houses, bed and breakfasts and the college campus.

Liked: Clean, well kept hostel. Separate dining and lounge area with a good amount seating.

Disliked: The wifi is poor in the rooms and there is no laundry facilities. The closest laundry is a 15 min walk and 11 euro per load. Also, breakfast is over priced.

Liked: Quiet place, very clean (they even steam-cleaned the bathroom!), pleasant grounds, good common areas

Disliked: The kitchen was small and very primitive - not even a potatoe peeler, only one small sharp knife, two old plastic cutting boards, and a couple of pots and pans
