Liked: The location is great and there's a bar downstairs which is great if you're too tired to venture far. You can also get a map of the city from reception.

Disliked: The rooms are only average; the showers slightly less than average. You're not allowed to eat in the rooms, either. (Honestly with all the hosteling I've done I've never really encountered anyone trying to eat a full meal in a room, but snacks should be allowed!) In addition, the elevator was questionable, and the stairs were even worse. My friend and I actually tried to walk to the top floor and found ourselves locked in the stairwell...
