Liked: There are no mice when i was there. the toilet wasnt as dirty as described. The bedsheet was clean. everything was clean. toilet was in good condition. Only the floor of the dorm a little dirty. the lockers are usable but its just to old and rusty.

Disliked: the common place was always noisy with rock music although there were some classical music. the people are constantly smoking and taking cannabis in the afternoon. and the plugs... there is too little of them.

Liked: Some of the staff were helpful, the free breakfast was ok, location was pretty good ( pretty close to central station) and the common are was big enough to fit a lot of people.

Disliked: The hostel was pretty dirty and the 20 bed dorm did not look like the pictures. The bathrooms were tiny and not cleaned very often and the only common area also doubled as the smoking room. I didn't mind that much but it was just annoying if you ever wanted a break from the weed.
