Liked: Great location. The reception staff were helpful. Good cooking area and common areas including a reading room.

Disliked: Although the reception staff were great all the other staff we saw (we think residents working for their stay) were surly or even rude. The dorm was really quite dirty, indeed there was a sign saying dorms are only cleaned once a week. In a 12 bed dorm with messy, dirty residents that isn't enough. We had a real issue with lights in the dorm I was in - could have done with a policy to people about lights out and lights on in the mornings. The door to our dorm did have a lock but it was very noisy to close so most residents didn't bother closing the door. As a result our dorm wasn't so secure, plus it was really noisy. The fridges didn't work. It was pretty unfriendly too when we were there - very hard to meet people even though there were so many people there!

Liked: This place is really comfortable and cozy! The atmosphere is good, like a big family!

Disliked: the internet you bought has only 300MB limitation. But, it sounds every hostel here in the city center like this: expensive and has time and date limitation.
