Liked: The access to refreshments and food all day. Great internet connection. AC in every room. Clean bedrooms and bathrooms. Perfect location between centre and train station.

Disliked: The staff were very abrupt - especially the girl I checked in (blonde hair). Quite rude to be honest. Kind of cast the hostel in a bad light from the get go.
