Liked: It was a nice Hostel and very central. Staff were really helpful,

Disliked: The only thing I disliked was there are no lockers in the rooms like in other hostels and all you would need would be a pad lock. I hope they get them in and can fit under the beds easily

Liked: Very friendly staff. Close to the center.

Disliked: The backapacker is located right to a busy street so it's quite noisy. It is said that alcoholo is not allowe on the premises but people were drinking every night. Not a lot of showers/toilets. And really bad disposition of the showers, you basically shower in front of everyone in the bathroom, especially since one of them doesn't have this blurry material to hide you!

Liked: Not a great deal to like!

Disliked: This is a very average over priced hostel. The 20 bed dorm looked & felt like some people lived there as there was stuff (crap) everywhere. The person on the bunk below me had stuff everywhere - hanging from all over my bunk. Even clothes and a wet towel on my bunk.
