Liked: The hostel is a pleasant location, well run and with helpful staff. The facilities are good and it is excellent value for money. I would go there again. I especially liked the two lounges.

Disliked: If the hostel is full, the kitchen is a bit small, and there needs to be more than one microwave.

Liked: Very clean kitchen, great to have lots of space to hang out and eat.

Disliked: Toilet flush didn't work that well, and the bathroom was a little dirty, but for one night's stay it's fine. Not a huge amount of flexibility in having to arrive between 5-6pm if you haven't pre-paid in full.
