Backpacking / gap year

08 January 2012 April would recommend this property

Liked: Fantastic, friendly and helpful staff. Our room had a TV which was a nice surprise, and the location is PERFECT.

Disliked: We had a street facing room and it can get a little loud, so if you're a light sleeper you would want a room that doesn't face the street. The lockers in my dorm didn't lock but the front desk is happy to lock up anything valuable in their safe (which is where I put my laptop.) Having o get the waffle shop next door to buzz you into the building every time you needed to come in was annoying. Our bathroom had no ventilation and STUNK.

Liked: Location, ensuite facilities.

Disliked: It was just for sleeping, nothing else to do, too much money for such a small value. Wi-fi not good, they offered towels but didn't give them.

Liked: I really liked the owner, he was really friendly and helpful. They also had a waffle shop underneath the hostel that smelled super delicious in the morning. It was located in the red light district so it was super close to everything and the main train station. The beds were clean and the people were nice.

Disliked: I didn't like the morning receptionist, he was highly unhelpful, unfriendly and somewhat rude.
