Liked: Central location, super friendly staff, complimentary coffee.

Disliked: Pretty expensive for the quality. 40 euros a night is a lot for a place in such crappy condition -- water damage on the ceiling, horribly stinking water pipes and no soap at any of the sinks. One of the showers smelled so badly that it couldn't be used without holding your breath the whole time. Bed linens didn't feel clean -- sandy or dirty -- and my travel companion complained that his sheets felt damp upon arrival.

Liked: The hostel is very well situated in the city and they also have friendly and helpful staffs. Free tea and coffee also available for the breakfast from 8-10.30am everyday. The dorm is comfortable and clean too. Good job!

Disliked: The reception is a little bit packed and it opens only from 8am. I hope they open sooner though
