Liked: I especially liked the international, friendly and "young" atmosphere. It was also wonderful how helpful the staff was. We received a lot of great advice regarding trips and transportation and perfect support.It's also very nice that the hostel offers a common room and a big kitchen as well as recurring events like Spaghetti Monday and movie nights. :-)The location, of course, is also unbeatable.

Disliked: The building is very clairaudient and in spite of using earplugsat night we often still heard banging doors, people talking in front of our door and foot steps on the floor above us.Also, the water in the shower needs to be turned up very far to become warm and the water jet thus is really, really hard.
