Liked: Close to the bus station, and not too far from the main shopping streets. Modern, though small, kitchen for self catering.

Disliked: Only had one common room and it was tiny. The lock on my bedroom door didn't work, so anyone could walk in at any time, luckily there were lockers in the room for valuables.

Liked: It was cheap.

Disliked: No hot eater in the taps which meant I had to shave in cold water and the showers were luke warm. The hostel was generally cold and it was possible to walk in and get to the top floor without being seen by reception. It did not feel very secure.

Liked: Location and kitchen are good. Staff is ok.

Disliked: I am not often visiting hostels, but I do stay in them at least once a year. This has been by far the worst experience. This hostel does not offer more apart from sleep, and in dirty sheets. Rooms are so small that in 4 bed room we couldn't move let alone take something out of bag. Hostel is a lower budget stay but it doesn't meen it can not be enjojable. This place is litterally - sleep over in dirty room and get out as fast as you can. It doesn't create nice atmosphere. Would recommend to check hostels in Lisabon in Portugal to lear how a good hostel looks like. It is a pitty, as the location and size have big potential.
