Liked: Not too expensive but not that cheap either. Pretty good location, only about a 15-20min walk from town center. Helpful staff.

Disliked: Looked a little shabby but beddings and the toilet were clean and everything worked at least. Only one wall socket in a dorm for 5 people so you couldn't charge your phone that often.

Liked: The location is perfect as it is very close to the centre of town but just far enough away to be quite quiet and handy for getting out of the city easily.

Disliked: The bunks were cheap (I was woken every time the person above me moved and it squeaked all the time). The mattresses were thin, one thin pillow was provided and the duvet was very narrow.
