Liked: Great central location for standard but cheaply priced accomodation. The bonus is really the lovely, helpful staff. I've stayed here a few times and would happily do so again.

Disliked: There are a couple of things that could do with imporvements, but they are regularly doing things up.

Liked: The hostel was very clean and real easy to get to. It's right by a main drag of clubs, pubs and shops. To get to the main museums and university you have to take a taxi or bus because it's pretty far away from the hostel. The employees were super nice the whole time we were there and were nice about giving directions and giving us advice about what to do. The hot breakfast in the morning is really good and it comes free with your stay. This was our first hostel and we were extremely happy about it.

Disliked: Since it's by the clubs and stuff, it was kind of loud at night but only if you're a light sleeper.

Liked: The breakfast is included

Disliked: Rude people. My couple and I woke up at night because one of the workers was shouting at a client. It is also a really dirty place; someone entered to change the towels but didn't leave any, they didn't clean the room during the 2 days that we stayed and the TV didn't even work. AVOID.
