Liked: Great breakfast for 7 Euros. Very clean place with ensuite bathrooms. We also liked the terrace. Generally a very nice place to stay.

Disliked: This hostel caters to groups of teenagers. They were too noisy when a busload of them arrived one night after 11 PM. Somebody needs to teach them a little bit of "hostel etiquette." I know it's difficult, but it can be done. I worked with teens for 30 years.

Liked: It was a great atmosphere for young travellers, with a pool and sauna!

Disliked: The bar closes a little early and did not seem like an easy place to meet new people. But I did travel during the off-season, so that may have factored into things.

Liked: The location is easy to find from the railway station, and easy to go anywhere by walk.It's clean and safe area. These staff also friendly.

Disliked: There's no any kitchen or microwave for cook, even the hot water for tea.It's impossible to get the tea when the restaurant is closed.

Liked: Location was good - easy distance into main centre and to the train station. Restaurant offered good reasonably-priced meals. Each person could have a big locker in their room. Staff were always busy but very nice when they helped me.

Disliked: Not much. Was a big Hostel with loads of people so hard for socialising if that's what you wanted

Liked: I liked that you got towels and sheets and that you could pick your own bed. Also, the shower and toilet are separate so no waiting if you need one or the other. Free printing and the option to eat on site. Also, the beds are comfy (I had a bunk even) and you have your own light and charger and mini table. And you get free soap and shower gel. Great sized locker for stuff.

Disliked: Location was fantastic for the academia gallery 10 mins. But, still a 20 min walk to town (but the hostel is cheap so that compensates for it). If you are travelling by yourself there wasn't really a lot on offer to meet others or join organised activities. The lockers are cheap wooden cupboards that would wobble if you put your stuff in it so not very secure (but if someone wants to break in.. They will anyway despite the sturdiness of the locker). I didn't get my key card deposit back.
