Liked: The staff is polite and sensitive and can also take care of difficult situations, like my friend's "attack" (she seemed to have problems, and she left later.)

Disliked: The house computer was so old it was quite inpossible to use. (I don't always carry my iPad, or other people, who have to carry their own things.) I am nickel allergic, and the shower head was rusty crap metal, which may cause people like me trouble. I would recommend to change the metal parts of showers to nonrusty parts.

City break

08 January 2013

Liked: Close to the metro station. Relatively cheap. One of the double rooms was relatively nice.

Disliked: Very difficult to find. There was no sign outside. Only way to find it was to read the hostel's website, where it stated which number to press on the unmarked intercom outside. FYI it was 2.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Dirty old apartment stuffed with beds. Non-english speaking staff. Next to impossible to find ! No lockers. A dead fly laying in a pool of water at the bottom of a nasty old fridge. No guarantee of getting back into the hostel, if you get back late.
