Liked: very central location, friendly staff

Disliked: no parking facilities, in case you come with a car forget it, because parking fees are almost as high as a one night stay - and you need to parks your car in a carpark in order to avoid theft.

28 February 2011

Liked: The location is good and free internet was great, but I could never use the computer because there are just too many people staying there.

Disliked: The bathrooms are the dirtiest I've ever seen, the bed was terrible/lumpy/unclean, there were like 5,000 steps to walk to get to the room, it was SOOO hot because the windows don't open up the entire way, and it was EXTREMELY noisy and bright in the room at night due to construction outside and lights for the construction. Terrible stay at a terrible place.

Family Holiday

06 February 2011

Liked: good location.

Disliked: Our room was very dirty. There were ants crawling on the floor and the bed. Also found them in the bathroom. Didn't use the kitchen to find out if they were in there also. It appeared they didn't change the fitted sheet on the bed, and it had hair on it. And all we were given was a comforter that appeared as though it never got cleaned, not sheet to use below it. They supplied a mini fridge in our room but it wasn't operable because it didn't shut and seal. Hot and stuffy room, there was a small open window but it didn't allow for ventilation. the bathroom on our floor was full of mold. mold covered the entire ceiling and you could smell it.

Liked: The location is excellent, easy to walk anywhere. It's also very good value for money for a double room right in the city centre! The bathroom facilities were great with plenty of showers and I never had trouble getting hot water at high pressure. The roof terrace and courtyard areas are also an added bonus! The hostel is also clean enough for us (and I can be quite fussy) but could be a bit cleaner.

Disliked: Whilst the kitchen has a lot of hobs etc. and is very big, it doesn't have enough pans that actually have handles!

Liked: Great place and great locación. It's not one of those hostels where all the people live permanently and make you feel like a complete strange.

Disliked: Lockers in the room will be a plus.
