Liked: The staff was friendly and there was no curfew.

Disliked: The bathrooms and shower rooms were either out of order or had to be shared by the entire floor. They were also very unclean (mold, dirt, water everywhere, toilet paper everywhere). Also, breakfast was the same every morning : toast and a drink. In the rooms, there were left over cigarette butts on the floor and on the side of the windows. I personally slept on the top bunk of a bunkbed and the bed sagged because the bar underneath was broken... I therefore woke up in the morning with back pains.

Liked: The property location is good, there are tram stops nearby to take you whereever you need to go. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was basic, I stayed in a dorm room, there were beds and an en suite bathroom. Overall it is a nice hostel if you are travelling with friends.

Disliked: The hostel had no real common room which means if you are travelling alone you don't have much chance of meeting people at the hostel. The hostel is non-smoking meaning you have to go outside if you want to smoke. The lights in the room were very dim meaning you cannot really read or anything in the room.
