Liked: The character of the hostel was lovely and all the travelers I encountered were very friendly, which was so nice. It was a fairly quiet hostel which was exactly what I was looking for. The only issue was that it was impossible to turn off the radiator in the room which was on nuclear meltdown mode and so it was uncomfortably hot. The bathrooms were clean and the kitchen spotless. I am rarely comfortable walking without shoes in the bathrooms of hostels and I really didn't mind here.

Disliked: The broken radiator and the beds were awful, but most hostels have horrendous beds, so that is not unusual.

Liked: Clean bedding would be nice. Very tired and needs a good clean up to bring this potentially good hostel back to previous glory.

Disliked: Dirty and not clean bedding all tired.
