Liked: Super friendly staff and fantastic location, nice common area and kitchen.

Disliked: They close the common area at night, and there is nowhere else to hang out or just stand and make a phone call than the staircase. They come in the rooms to make the beds of the people that already checked out at 8:30 in the morning! Checkout time is at ten. Wait at least until then!

Liked: It has a great kitchen area, very easy to cook and lots of dishes available (with dishwasher and detergents in case others can't be bothered cleaning their stuff). Very friendly and helpful staff, good location and free overseas calls. Mixed dorms are clean and beds comfortable. Lockers available under beds. They had some daily specials (pancakes on weekends?) but I wasn't there when they were available.

Disliked: Lockers under the beds are mesh and people could (theoretically) pull through/get access to smaller bags/items left there. The floor of the bathroom/shower room in the big mixed dorm on the 2nd floor was a bit unpleasant. Hair and dirt/mud on the floor for the duration (2 nights) of my stay.

Liked: Great place, not too many proper backpackers - a lot of city guests. Enjoyed that they had; a Skype phone, good wifi, free breaky and great night activities. Could do with more bathrooms especially sharing 1 between 10 in the big dorms. Also some padding on all the doors to muffle the slam would go alright!

Liked: Nice staff, reasonable breakfast. Kitchen good for meeting people. Good wifi. Great location. Not the best hostel I've stayed in but was pretty cheap so it was good.

Disliked: Really noisy rooms- not outside noise, or even other guests being that noisy- just kept getting woken up by people coming in, going to the bathroom etc. Had a really bad sleep the first night so then got drunk the next 2 nights so I passed out and slept like a baby!
