Liked: while I was there someone got about 200$ stolen from a backpack, they were accusing one of the cleaning guys. We din't have any problems, maybe because we where very carefull with our stuff and allways caried the money with us. I don't think is the most secure place but for the money is great.

Disliked: The place is nice for the price, its right in the red light district.wi

Liked: The staff were brilliant, really friendly and helpful. Showed us the best places to go gave out maps, look after all your valuables behind the counter etc. Everything is very high quality and so a really good place to stay. Location was really good in terms of being able to walk to everywhere and didn't need any public transport.

Disliked: Location probably wasn't the best safety wise as its borderline red light district with coffee shops opposite. When coming back from nights out at 3am there would be quite a lot of junkies to walk past but we never had any actual problems and it is well lit/fairly busy. Also there's only one key per room so you have to rely on other people waking up when you knock to let you in!

City break

Liked: The location just cannot be bettered. The pool table and smoking room is great too!

Disliked: The staff were evidently unhappy and it didn't seem like a very healthy working environment. Some of that was bound to show up in their interaction with guests, though they did try to be helpful.

Liked: One guy on reception was really helpful and friendly, recommending places to eat & directing us around the city. Free wifi in bar was good, bathrooms were pretty clean too.

Disliked: One niggle would be that there was barely enough light to see in the bathroom. Also it didn't feel completely secure, but the staff assured us that they kept a close eye on who was coming and going.

Liked: Nothing.... One staff member was nice and helpful - she warned us about the poor security of their hostel... !

Disliked: The rooms were very stuffy... because 20+ people should NOT sleep in such a small space! Other travelers ate their breakfast in their bunk beds, levaing a mess around their beds... making it difficult to get around the room... Neighborhood is quiet during the day, but noisy throughout the night... If you want to sleep - do not go to this hostel... it is in the middle of the red light district.... go there for the sex=servers, live sex shows and "coffee shops"...
