Liked: I read quite a few bad reviews about this place, and honestly have no idea why anyone was complaining. The hostel is in an ideal location (minutes from the train station, and right in the red light district). The staff was extremely friendly, the rooms were nice and clean, the bathroom was way better than I expected, and cheap drinks at the bar (especially during happy hour). It was my first stay in a hostel, and I was very happy with my choice!

Disliked: No complaints at all, really enjoyed my stay.
