Liked: Large socialising area which meant you were able to meet other travellers. There was also a bar selling cheap alcohol and a well equipped kitchen. Great ice cream palour across the road.

Disliked: BED BUGS!!!!!!!!!! On our first night at this hostel staying the the 24 bed dorm, i was eaten alive by bed bugs. When we consulted the staff the following day all they offered to give me was a clean duvet cover and did not seem in the slightest bit concerned. Needless to say i spent the second night sleeping on the tiled floor. The rooms are huge and with many beds packed in close together. There is no aircon and the windows offer little ventilation so it got very hot and sticky. We had to walk down 3 flights of stairs just to get to a toilet or shower. This meant walking through other dorms that were partitioned with draped material as opposed to doors. There was a lack of plugs throughout the whole hostel. Only 1 in the dorm and 4 in the main socilaising area. The whole hostel had a fusty damp smell to it. Including the seating areas and "zebra bed" in the main room. This hostel seem to think they are "cooler" than they really are. With a sign up saying "No gang bangs" really?!

Liked: Very convenient location metro and tram very close, ideal for sightseeing and return just for a sleep, some of the staff is very helpful, some other just go by the book. It's a pro that has a 24h reception and you can buy drinks and food in very good prices. All included in price (linen,breakfast) is also honest.

Disliked: Toilets could have more room, Breakfast could be better.

Liked: There was a bar and space for activity and the bathroom was quite clean.

Disliked: We booked a 6 bed girls dorm and got a 6 bed mixed dorm, which unfortunately wasn't a room. It didn't have a door neither real walls. They walls didn't go up to the ceiling so that it was actually like you were living with the people of the rooms next to you together. You could hear and smell them, but fortunately not see them. PLUS: They had bed bugs. Not only me, but two others persons as well were bitten by these aggressive things. I complained while checking-out. The personell told me that they will contact the manager and then write me an email, but until now almost one week later, I haven't heard anything!

Liked: Great communal area, plenty of space to socialise, bar reasonably priced, table football and table tennis on offer. Good sized, modern kitchen.

Disliked: Check-in took an age. Staff weren't very welcoming, they didn't tell me breakfast was included. Staff could have given me a map of the local area and told me what events were on. A pity the staff let this hostel down, a few basic hospitality issues, however clearly a hostel with potential.

Liked: I did like the common room, very nice and comfortable.

Disliked: The showers are not very good, the water spreads everywhere, there is no place to hang the close and the door to the shower is only half of the wall so you need to pay attention so that no one sees you half naked. I also hated all the advises hanged on the walls so that we won't do this or that. Is very negative, they are EVERYWHERE!!

Liked: Staff were fantastic... Really helpful and went out of their way to make things easy for you.

Disliked: The bathrooms weren't great. Water pressure sucked and they didn't seem all that clean but perhaps they were just a bit old. Location was a little inconvenient too, but it was ok.

Liked: Large and sociable common area, with a bar and lots of soft furnishings. It was nice to be able to chill out in the evening and swap stories with other travellers.

Disliked: The bathrooms weren't very clean, which is partially to do with other people staying who can't clear up after themselves,but a regualr check of the facilities wouldn't hurt. The air conditioning in our dorm was pretty useless if you weren't right underneath it. It was one small machine which probably kept 4 people cool out of 24! It was one of the most uncomfortable nights sleep all holiday, as it was just too hot and sweaty to sleep properly. People in the other dorms didn't have this problem. I'd highly recommend that they put another air conditioning unit the the 24 bed dorm!

Liked: Has its own bar.

Disliked: I had a room three floors up and the bathrooms for it were the floor below. For the men's bathroom sometimes the motion sensitive light would go out while you were still in there and even jumping in front of it wouldn't turn it back on. The lockers were big but this is the first place my lock was to thin to be used for it. The shower situation is awful. I know what shared showers are but the stall was almost to small to change in and the floor was just dirty. No handles, just a button that's supposed to give you 10 minutes of hot water. Mine would just squirt for a few seconds.
