03 July 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Spacious property, everything well functioning, good dorms and bedding

Disliked: The lounge is very loud in the evening, very loud. Till midnight (flexible). Since it is the central space with everything around it can´t be avoided. I´m not the only quiet guest so things are out of balance. They also serve too much beer or whatever, a hostel is not a pub. And the whole day a loud radio has to be on, life doesn´t seem to be possible without liquor and noise ... how sad.

Liked: The staff was amazing: really helpful and fun! It is a great place to meet other people, but because everyone is spending time at the corridor / living room until late at night, it might be a bit noisy in the evenings. They have a set quiet time though, so it was fine.

Disliked: The other toilet broke during our stay, but they got it fixed very fast.

12 May 2012 Jacqueline would recommend this property

Liked: Female dorm. Proximity to station. Helpful staff.

Disliked: Not really a complaint but the 'boho' style decor and the number of teenagers lying around on beanbags trying desperately to look cool made me (a woman of a certain age) feel I didn't belong. The clutter, trailing leads, cracked laminate flooring, knickers under the bed and untidiness gave me the impression of a lack of cleanliness but probably made the aforementioned kids feel at home.

Liked: It's very central and good value for money. There was a hair dryer and even hair streightener in the female dorm. There were also some cosmetics for free. The girls in the hostel were very nice and helpful. They would bake a cake during the day for the guests. I honestly recommend it!

Liked: Very clean everywhere, spacious common room with plenty of room to lounge / chill out. Great soft beds and a fresh pillow and blanket. Slightly annoying floors - if someone walks past the bed feels like its swaying - but that's just the building. Free 5min international calls are a bonus. They let us stay and keep the key until our PM flight, which was very helpful. This place really felt like home, would definitely return.

Disliked: 'Free breakfast' was a joke - just toast and some honey. Otherwise perfect though.
