Liked: Central location with nice view over the inner harbour from kitchen.

Disliked: There was no fridge and waterheater in the room, only in shared kitchen and the free WiFi was verrry slow. Could sometimes get no connection. Even I paid a high price, the view from the room was not so nice.

Liked: Lovely kitchen, lounge, balcony area! Good bathroom facilities, never had to wait. Brilliant location with lovely views from the balcony. Friendly staff and clean place.

Disliked: The price. It was very expensive and the beds weren't that comfy. Also other residents were very loud on our final evening well past 11:30! When the cut off for noise is 11pm!!And the night warden did nothing!

Liked: Rooftop terraceLocation

Disliked: Being put in a room that smelled of chemicals and not being told the smell was because of a bed bug fumigation. hostel chose to move me out of the room 2 days later because they were worried about the smell and also because they wanted to fumigate the room a second time.
