Liked: A huge room for socializing

Disliked: I've stayed in a 6 Bed Dorm and it only had 4 Plug ins for electronic devices. I had the bed in the bottom of the Bunk and there was not a plug in for my Laptop which was close enough.

Liked: The location was nearly perfect, right around the corner of Courtenay Place and the staff did know what to do and was really nice and helpful.

Disliked: For myself personally it was too big. I lost the overview and because it was that huge it didn't seem "comfortable". And besides that our room was really hot and sticky and you were barely able to open a window.

Liked: Good location. Big dining/living area makes it easy to socialise.

Disliked: No alcohol permitted in the hostel, so can't pre drink!! Walls are thin and windows are not double glazed so its a bit noisy at night and when it's windy (which is most of the time!!!) feels like the place is going to fall down!

Liked: It had elevators. That was okay.

Disliked: I was on the seventh floor. We had four bathrooms, only two of which were in service, and of the two only one had a working lightbulb. Neither had showers. I was there for four days and not so much as the lightbulb got fixed.
