Liked: Overall a good stay. Female receptionist very nice and helpful. Location good.

Disliked: Each dorm room only had 1 key so you would have to knock and see if anyone was in your room to let you in or then get a key. A bit annoying especially getting people up if they are laying down. Breakfast was just toast, need at least cereal. Toliet in dorm stunk.

Liked: Lo único que me gustó del hotel esque tenían ordenadores con internet gratis.

Disliked: El baño de la habitación estaba muy sucio y estropeado. La puerta ni siquiera cerraba. Las literas en las que dormíamos estaban apunto de romperse y la puerta de la habitación siempre se quedaba abierta porque no cerraba. Por las mañanas empezaban a recoger el desayuno antes de la hora en que se suponía que terminaba y había que llevar los platos hasta la "cocina".

Liked: Nothing outstanding, was just alright.. Front desk staff was helpful.

Disliked: Our room was on the ground floor next to the toilet so it stank a little for some reason.. Otherwise it wasn't too bad, just a place to rest after a tiring day of sightseeing

Liked: Sphinx Hostel is overall excellent! We can buy food from outside and heat it up using the oven and microwave provided. The staff are very helpful and informative. Free computers, free breakfast and printing services are available if you need it. Somemore, it is located just at the center of city centre. If i were to go again, i will definitely go for Sphinx Hostel again!!

Disliked: Honestly, the loo is a bit smelly. That's all!
