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.

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.
