Liked: Good location. Staff were very flexible as we had to alter our booking last minute, and they were very accommodating.

Disliked: Common areas were ok, but the corridors and rooms didnt' have a welcoming atmosphere. All doors had swipe card access, but there wasnt any real security as everyone left them open all the time. If you left the room the door didn't swing close and lock behind you, unless you pulled it. There were no lockers in the room, they were avaialble downstairs next to reception if you asked. Stayed in a 6 bed dorm,. It was very small and didn't have enough room for suitcases for any more than 3 people.

Liked: The location is perfect and very easy to reach with every means of transport. I appreciated the kitchen and the luggage room. Beds are large and comfortable. Showers are well organized and clean if you think you share them with many other people.

Disliked: Unfortunately they have just a toilet for each floor and hostel isn't provided with a washing machine.

Liked: Staff was really helpful, the common areas were big, the beds comfortable and the opportunity of individual lockers for dormitory's sleepers really convenient. Location is a great asset too.

Disliked: It would be nice to offer breakfast (even with a fee), as food is expensive in the city! And add some electricity spots, one for a dormitory is really not possible for all phones, cameras...

Liked: I really liked the small refridgerator in the guest room I stayed and the water heater. So you´re not bound to get into the kitchen one floor down.

Disliked: I found the kitchen a bit too small. Also I got a very distant feeling in the dining room and TV room, but maybe that´s because I stayed there only for a very short period of time. It didn´t feel so much as home as other hostels I stayed with felt like.
