Liked: It was a nice and clean property. Meeting many people from all over the world is always fun and hearing there stories. Being able to stay in dorm style rooms for people doing on going travels is one of the best. Thanks for everything.

Disliked: Seemed overall designed for large groups.

Liked: The mattresses and linens provided were clean. The lockers were big enough to fit and organize all of my stuff. I enjoyed having my own lamp and power outlet. I enjoyed taking little breaks from exploring the city by the pool, very nice installation.

Disliked: The windows of my room were adjacent to the emergency staircase and it was a bit loud when people were coming back to the hostel during the night. Also, people sat and talked outside our window during the night.

Liked: Location and the terrace were great. Buffet breakfast and nice room.

Disliked: Staff was horrible everywhere. Rude at the desk and at breakfast. We pointed out the wrong price of the breakfast as it was advertised being 6€ elsewhere and was suddenly 7€ and the clerk hated us after that. 4 hairdryer for the whole hostel and once took out, could keep the whole stay. Obviously I never got one which was ridiculous. Washing machines overly prices (5€ a wash!) so our roommate smelled horrible with her handwashed clothes. There was a snail in my breakfast and gym had broken machines.

Liked: Very close to all the main attractions. Charger at every bed. Separate ensuite toilet and shower. Nice garden, lively atmosphere. Lots of services on offer, but with a price.

Disliked: Staff were helpful, but not particularly friendly. It's a big place, reminds you more of a hotel than a hostel. Hostel restaurant is very expensive (7 euros for a buffet breakfast at a hostel is outrageous!). Food prices in general are similar to the tourist places in the centre.

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.
