Liked: nice lounge with goog movie selection, many tables and chairs outside

Disliked: dorm not really clean, as backpackers were allowed to work there for a free night, many of them were not too motivated to clean. my sheets were spotty. Roomkeys were pointless, the doors stood always open, no matter if there was anyone in the room or not.

Liked: The kitchen was well equipped and I really enjoyed cooking there. The dorm was well-organized, cozy and clean, unlike many of the hostels I have stayed at.

Disliked: It was winter so it was generally very cold everywhere, but the heater in the dorm worked fine so I had no trouble with it eventually. All in all, I had no trouble with this hostel. It was a disappointment that the wifi wasn't free for others than YHA members, but that seems to be the case everywhere in this country.
