Liked: This hostel is really good value for money- cheap night's stay with free buffet breakfast- a good variety of food, walking tours with really friendly tour guides, and in a really good location- quite close to most of the important places, you can walk everywhere.

Disliked: Doesn't include towels, so that was a little annoying. Staff were friendly but not super helpful. Wi-fi is a bit slow at times. Decor is gaudy, but that's to be expected!

Liked: The staff were really helpful. The gardens were nice and I liked that there was things to buy like food and drinks for cheap. The walking your was good and I met some really great friends here. The rooms have computers and each person had a plug and light.

Disliked: 80% of the people that stay here are Asian and they do not have the same level of consideration while in the rooms. I had a horrible experience in my room and didn't sleep more than four hours a night. People showering and blow drying there hair at 1am and going through their bags. Then waking up at 6am and doing the same thing. Even had another lady turn on the room light at 4am to pack up all her stuff for an hour. Nice! The other problem was the bathroom in my room kept flooding. I don't know if this was a result of the Asian girls, because when I showered it seemed fine, but when I woke up the bathroom was totally flooded! Also the room had a musty wet feeling in it. Also, the Internet is not great! Cuts out completely from time to time. Was really hard to Skype family or even check Facebook. Also, there is tons of food for breakfast, but a lot of it doesn't taste great. You have to do trial and error to find what to eat.

Liked: Great Location, thats mostly all we cared about during our stay-just wanted a convenient place to stay with secure spots to keep our luggage!

Disliked: Breakfast-included yet NOT worth it, so gross-the only thing that looked ok was the cereal-yet they only offer hot milk-so if included breakfast is a deal breaker for you, just forget about it!-bad coffee too.

Liked: The location and atmospere is great . I like decorations on the walls and a lot of painting. Breakfast is nice, stuff are helpful and friendly to guests. The facilities are clean. I can say this hostel totally worth its price. Also they have nice garden to rest, library and some bonuses as cheap wine and apples in the frige . The hostel organized in the way you feel comfortable and safe.

Disliked: Only one dislike about private bathroom there is no border between toilette and bath. When you take a shower the water is everywhere, near toilette near the morrior. I would recommend to install some simple border. But all in all the bathroom is ok.
