Liked: Very nice, kind and helpful personal, especially Emma. Location is good. Just in 7 minutes walking from central station and situated in center. Value for money was good. more than this brekfast was included.

Disliked: it would be better if the hostel management updated the interior and paid an attention to cleanliness.

Disliked: Rooms a not clean or very rapidly clean. However toilets and bathrooms seem to have more attention (fortunately).Bed duvets don't seem to be very clean or at least not very recent (when checking under the cover you find a lovely yellow coloured duvet)

Liked: You can chill out there anytime you want and are free to stroll to the very close cool places. The staff knew some really cool places that tourists don't always catch which was sweet. The staff were really cool about everything; and I was even sleeping in the wrong bed!

Disliked: The breakfast needs a bit of work I think.

Liked: I was there alone (female) and just for 1 night. For the price (I paid 12 eur) it was not disappointed. Good location, the room and bed were clean. I slept very well (but I was really tired).

Disliked: Three things bothered me: the position of the lockers (they're really closer to a bed, so it was hard to take the things from my bag there), the wi-fi (the signal wasn't good in the bedroom) and there is just one socket for 16 girls in the room.
