Liked: Nothing really, other getting a discount because the room was not as stated on the website ie: no private bathroom

Disliked: Very noisy, lots of young travellers if I had known this I would have gone elsewhere, not all backbackers or budget travellers want this type of accomodation. Maybe website or advertisting should reflect this accomodation is aimed at your overseas travellers.Room was not as advertised but they were good enough to give us a discount, I don't know whos fault this is that the website is wrong but it needs to be updated as is very misleading

Liked: Good location. Cheap drinks in bar.

Disliked: Pretty big so it's hard to settle. Kitchen was pretty gross. Shower was bad - only on tap so couldn't change the temperature and it was often too hot to even get under it. Noisy at night.

Liked: Good location in town centre

Disliked: Worst hostel I ever stayed at!! Dirt und broken facilities everywhere! Tiny, bad smelling and dirty kitchen, disgusting to cook there! Toilettes and showers tiny and mouldy, dark and dirty as there are no windows.I stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm which was way to small, no place to store luggage. Beds horribly uncomfortable and noisy. Every move in bed made great noise so everybody in room woke up !Loco bar on ground level plays loud music all night that you can hear through out the whole hostel!There are many much nicer hostels around which are worth the money!
