Liked: Lovely old building yet kept in a good condition. A good bed to sleep on and the living room was beautiful and clean. The bus stops right next to the hostel and I could walk to the city center easily (without luggage)

Disliked: The bathroom could be in a better shape. Some carpet on the floor were torn and corners weren't clean.

Liked: Staff helpful and cheery.Bunks. Need individual reading lights. Bunks hazardous. Ladder is vertical- safer to angle. Rungs are too narrow for adult foot. Width inappropriate for adult figure. Difficult to make top bunk bed due to height of top bar. In all,

Disliked: Noise. No way to close doors quietly, especially bedroom doors. Suggest pads on doors.Seating in lounge is too low, too soft and in sore need of repair. Has been since my stay two years ago.Internet needs to be part of the service.
