Liked: I really loved this hostel! It was very cost efficient! It was clean and the staff did anything and everything in their ability to help you if they needed to! Also, they were just cool people and they recommended things we should do or try. Not only did they do that, but they recommended a lot of free things. My room was very clean and I actually ended up making fast friends with my roommates! Lastly, I didn't feel unsafe leaving my stuff out. Nothing was stolen from me and it was great. If you did want to use the lockers, they are extremely roomy!

Disliked: The only thing I was kind of unsure about was the things they offered in the hostel. In all of the rooms, they have a sign behind the door saying they sold all these things when they really did not. Me and my travel partner really needed an adapter and they did not have it!

Liked: It has a great location, most places in the city are easily walkable! The staff is really great and friendly, willing to help you out with anything! I emailed them a question when booking and they responded promptly, which was great. We stayed in a room with 10 beds and it was very spacious, unlike some other places I've stayed. Overall, great stay.

Disliked: Wish the check in time was a bit sooner, but they had a luggage storage room, which was great.

Liked: In a dorm room, which was simply furnished but very clean and spacious - what you want in a hostel. Also had a great live music bar two doors down, and was within wallking distance of the main touristy part of town, but being on the edge of the main touristy streets meant it was not too loud.

Disliked: Nothing.
