Liked: I like that the staff were always around to greet you, remembered your face, the hotel bar was lively in the day and evening which made it feel lively. It was very secure and felt safe to leave my belongings in the building whilst I was out all day.

Disliked: The wifi wasn't strong enough throughout the building and after speaking to other hostel visitors they had the same trouble.

Liked: The location is very good. All the others things are not good at all. None facilities, bad WiFi. Forget WiFi in the rooms. Ver bad staff

Disliked: As I said before, most of it didn't liked me. Just the location, that is good, but that makes the place very noisy. Dirty, no place to relax except for the huge sports bar downstairs.

Liked: That it is located on top of a bar

Disliked: MANY things. Staff is pretty unfriendly and does not inform you of what they offer/rules. You just learn as you go. Rooms are pretty basic. If people in your room take up the lockers then you're forced to use ones in the hallway. There are only 2 plugs in each room and they are located on one wall, so dont bank on charging anything unless you luck out with the 1 bed next to BOTH PLUGS. Also, the bar has wifi but the rooms do not. Would not recommend anyone staying here because the prices of the rooms are too high for what they offer.

Liked: Just 10 mins from the station very easy to find and excellent location direct in the Red Light District. We stayed in a private 5 bed dorm with shower and toilet, the room was quite large and clean with 5 single beds. The bar and food was excellent and you get a discount on the food if you stay there. Great if staying in large groups of friends and want to be close to the centre.

Disliked: The bar staff were really friendly but the women who were running the hostel didn't seem very happy and welcoming .

Liked: Great location.

Disliked: There are no cooking facilities, and the only social space is the bar downstairs which you can't eat your own food in so that made eating quite expensive. The rooms get extremely hot at night particularly on the top bunks. Lack of powerpoints in the hostel as well.
