Liked: The location was excellent because it is right in the heart of the city and you can easily walk to many bars, coffee shops, and tourist spots

Disliked: It wasn't very clean, my room had a rat in it, the floor felt grimy and the bathroom had a strange odor

Liked: It has a good location. Close to many places including Dam Square, Trams, Shopping, etc.

Disliked: The place was quite dirty. Theyre was no food allowed in the room due to a rat problem. The place has a graffiti theme which is nice except for all the additional graffiti added by people. The beds squeaked the slightest movement would wake up the whole room. There was a large deposit for keys including lockers. My room was located in another building that had no amenities. Breakfast was in another building. No wifi. Not even a single outlet anywhere in the room. Not even in the bathroom. Had it been more than 2 nights after a longer stay elsewhere. I would have left.

Liked: The breakfast was lush and all-in-all it is a great value for money, well-located hostel!

Disliked: Climbing lots of stairs and being housed in a separate building...it was only a minute or two walk away though to be fair!
