Liked: The atmosphere is really cool, it embodies what hostels should be about everywhere, as much a gathering place of people as accommodation. The premises are well-designed and well-maintained.

Disliked: Wi-fi was terrible, I understand you have many guests using it at one time, but still, there is room for improvement there.

Liked: The WiFi was good and the bar and dining area were modern and a good place to catch up and make friends! Staff were helpful suggested things and tours to do and they were amazing, beds were comfy and our room was a good size however our friends room was half of he side with the same number of beds

Disliked: We were placed in a room with people who were staying for weeks not days so there things manopalised the room with clothes every where, it wasn't cleaned in the 4 nights we were there the bin was over flowing and a smell was making the room unpleasant also on Friday sat night didn't get any music due two noise from the live band at the bar, rock music to 2am isn't ideal for sleeping
