Liked: The beds, each had their own curtains (luxurious). You can have your own privacy!

Disliked: Water in the showers had no pressure (so it took longer to shower, but one can live with that)

Liked: Love the free hot breakfast in the mornings and cheap dinners at night. Also great that we could book tours and get picked up for them right from the hostel. Also, a small feature but really great, was the little curtains on each bunk.

Disliked: The showers were pretty atrocious. They were always dirty and the shower head wasn't great (weak stream of water). The shower drain was always clogged and so I was pretty much standing in a little pool of water. Sinks were pretty dirty too.

Liked: The guy from New Zealand operating the hostel was great! Very helpful and knew his stuff. He was very friendly and inclusive. He sat in the common room playing requests on his guitar claiming he wasn't a juke box! The breakfast was pretty good too.

Disliked: The mattress in our room was the lumpiest of mattresses, the bathroom was just dirty - it was obvious that it had been cleaned by staff but the whole hostel needs a good bit of money pumped into it as it was just grimy! So the price of the room €60 was just too much even if it did include a decent enough breakfast!
