Liked: Breakfast ok. Great location and very secure.

Disliked: No atmosphere, staff average. It seems like there would be plenty of other places to stay for the same price that offer a more sociable environment. Also WiFi doesn't reach any room.

Liked: Free breakfast, good location, ensuite in rooms with shower and toilet, heating kept the room warm, not too much noise from the street or the rest of the hostel.

Disliked: Staff were okay, seemed like you were interrupting them or annoying them to check in. Also, due to security, you have to constantly ask them to buzz you into the hostel front door and into the room/kitchen area, which can get annoying when you're going in or out, or you've forgotten something. No toilet seat on the toilet in the kitchen area. No wifi in rooms :( Only a few powerpoints in a 10 bed room.
