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: Nice location, good for meeting people.

Disliked: A little too open - no doors on the dorms, and some dorms are walk-through, to get to the other bathrooms. The showers could have been nicer too. Crappy breakfast (instant coffee...)

Liked: Really good common room area with bar, pool, table tennis etc, good place to meet people. Large kitchen. easy to find, tram stop about 2 mins away.

Disliked: I booked a female only dorm, but ended up sharing with 2 other females and three males. The shared bathroom could do with an upgrade!

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.

Liked: Fantastic location--it's a few metro stops away from the train station ( you don't want to stay around there), and it's a 8 minute walk from the metro stop. there's plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, and you can easily walk to all the city sights. the bed is comfortable, and the place is friendly.

Disliked: it was under renovation when i was there, so the men's bathroom was a mess.

Liked: The staff was really friendly. Eventhough our third person was absent and we did not notify them, they still did not charge us for his reservation. It was really great location - about 20mins walking from the city centre, subway was really close.

Disliked: The fact that you have to rent your towel is a bit too corporate. They could have included it with the bed sheets. I knew that fact, but still. They would have to implement some solution about the noise in the rooms. There are 22-24 beds in a single room and whenever somebody wakes up they wake up the rest of the people in the room as well.

Liked: It is very well located and the front desk staff are incredibly helpful and know how to answer all your questions.

Disliked: The property isn't fully finished. So the bathrooms are on the second floor while I stayed on the 3rd, and one of the bathrooms was out of order. There was NO air conditioning OR fans in the dorm room so it was sweltering in the night. And even with windows open it didn't help, and it only brought the mosquitoes. Its only beginning of JUne and we can't breath - I would warn anybody staying over July/August.

Liked: No lock-out of the rooms. Nice full kitchen. Lockers in the rooms. Enough showers. Location is good. Common room is great. There's a bit of construction right now because they are expanding I think. Stayed there for 6 nights, would do it again.

Disliked: A few mosquitoes in the rooms. I got bitten pretty bad, but i don't really mind it, and the others were fine, only 1-2 bites in one night. The showers were the kind that you have to push to get water and then it stops and you have to push again, no real control over the temperature or the pressure. It can get noisy if there are noisy guests, but that's true of everywhere.

Liked: great staff, mostly really helpful and friendly and accomodating on the learning of my italian. very safe, trusting atmosphere..didnt feel the need to lock every single thing away. comfy bed. sadifsying breakfast. i wouldn't call it a party hostel but a good starting point - make friends in the social area/ small bar and go from there. good for a solo traveller.

Disliked: not a biggy but shower doors were a bit difficult to close. the bar doesn't serve aperol!

Liked: Atmosphere was good. Surprisingly, I slept very well in the 24 bed dorm. Linen are included, bed is clean and really comfortable comparing to other hostels I've been to. Breakfast is great, they have a service of bike renting, it is close to the center and I felt very safe, the level of security is great.

Disliked: Showers are definitely not the best Ive seen so far. Did not like the fact that we needed a card to get in, it was a bit complicated, but at the same time it is More safe
