Liked: very friendly staff, free pancake breakfast, free luggage storage, felt safe

Disliked: dripping toilet, it's quite loud! in the ensuite 8-bed dorm i stayed in there was only one shower/toilet for 8 people. you really need a couple more toilets, and maybe another shower at least, in the hallway, otherwise there is no going to the toilet ever. i prefer female-only dorms. make sure people know to keep quiet after 11 p.m. some don't realize that you don't need to slam a door to close it ;o)

Liked: A nice small hostel, good kitchen and rooms are OK.

Disliked: Nothing in particular... The room view was on another building a few meters away, but I guess you can't get better in the town center.

Liked: The facilities were good, the kitchen was spacious and well stocked for utensils and various cooking necessities. Bowes Pub just around the corner was lots of fun, so the advertisements placed in the hostel were well chosen and useful.

Disliked: The arrangement of the tables upstairs might be changed around a little to ensure more seating space but honestly everything was satisfactory (except that pancakes do not equal crepes, cakes are light and fluffy and so panCAKES should be too. but the crepes were good)
