Liked: Staff was very friendly and helpful. Marva speaks French and gave good tips on where to eat.There are rooms on the 3rd floor where the reception is and on the first floor.The room I stayed in was a 4 bed room on the first floor. It was quiet. Lockers are large, which is great.The common area on the third floor has a kitchen where you can enjoy free basic breakfast in the morning. It is easy to meet and discuss with other travellers.Rooms, bathrooms and common areas are clean.Location wise it is located in a quiet street, and you can walk from the train station and to most sites.

Disliked: (Free) WIFI spotty on the first floor. But ok on the third floor.

Liked: It is very clean, and the rooms are extremely spacious for hostel rooms. It is quiet and tranquil. The kitchen was always very nice and clean.

Disliked: If you are looking for a very lively hostel where you can make friends and meet a lot of other people, this isn't the hostel for you (but if you want something quiet it is good). The free breakfast is very basic. The hostel is a little tricky to find (there are no signs outside the door indicating the hostel's location), but once you have found it the location is not bad.
