Liked: The hostel is in an excellent location and is great value for money. The rooms are clean and spacious and the staff are very friendly and helpful. They also participate in a free walking tour of the city which was a brlliant way to start the weekend and get a good view of the city.

Disliked: Sometimes there was no hot water so you couldn't use the showers.

Liked: The staffs were more than friendly, they were awesome. People there are all really cool...the hostel pub crawl was freaking awesome tooIt was the people that made it awesome. If you're looking to make friends from all around the world...explore and well being open about things it's pretty damn good. Just dont mind too much about staying with other ppl and its fine

Disliked: It really is just what you get for the amount you pay...some people might dislike staying in a room with 9 other ppl who might snore and come back in the middle of the night...but honestly... im a sound sleeper and i come back in the morning so i dont care....However.. they need to boost their internet connections...it was goin on and off and being temperamental at times and it was only limited to the ground floor at the reception and the canteen(sometimes) but not in the rooms

Liked: Nothing!

Disliked: It isn't a safety place (somebody stole my food!) and when I said this at the staff, they answered me: "I'm sorry!" and nothing; but there is an webcam in kitchen, I think it was fake.It isn't clean.
