Liked: Very easy to reach from the train and bus station but not in the middle of the city so it's nice and quiet - at least in the apartment we rented. The apartment itself was very spacious and equipment provided was adequate. Pricewise it was even comparable to sleeping in the dorms but with the added advantage of a private apartment. All in all an enjoyable stay even though there were some minor issues.

Disliked: The apartment is a bit run-down and has seen many people staying in it over the years without much renovation work. There were minor issues like the fridge running constantly, the door lock not making too safe an impression (leaning hard against it might just gain you entry...), some hinges being worn-out and previous guests weren't too keen on giving the oven a good scrub. Comparing it to other accommodations on our trip it certainly wasn't the best in terms of bang/quid.

Liked: It was cheap and quiet and situated in a great location with an excellent view.

Disliked: In the dorm room none of the beds had a night lamp, which is annoying when several people with different sleeping patters share a room. Also there where hardly any sockets in the room to charge your phone with.

Liked: Perfect location Hot showers Ive stayed in nicer places and some places not as nice

Disliked: Being in the "annex"- not very roomy, at a push even with two in the kitchen. Bathrooms a squeeze too! I think there should be a reduced rate for those put in the annex. Only clean bedding given was a pillow case and duvet cover, do the mattress covers get changed frequently? hmmm was going to opt for the top bunk but quite a few hairs on mattress. Room i shared smelt really badly (by the way the double glazed pane of glass in the window is shot, the outer pane is none existant). "Annex" could do with some tlc! "Annex" really reminded me of dire student digs.

Liked: The location is perfect, the hostel is in a nice, cosy, old building, and has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There's a really homely common room, with a laptop you can use, also free wifi everywhere, there's also a little kitchen with free tea, coffee and milk which was great. There's tellys in the private rooms which is really nice. The room was cosy with a good sized bed. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this relaxed, cosy, homely hostel.

Disliked: Nothing, everything was great.

Liked: I loved this hostel from the moment I came in! The atmosphere was like being at home away from home. Everytime staying was very nice and acted more like a family. Unlike big hostels this one was personal. The kitchen facilities are great too and everyone was good at cleaning ip after themselves. Highly recommend this hostel!

Liked: Clean, well-lit. Room was fantastic; spacious, nice bright colors on the walls, and I loved that there was a shelf with each bed.

Disliked: No hot water in the showers! :(((( Note: I did not book this hostel myself (my friend booked it through my email) so I didn't see how the property was described on hostelbookers.com. Also, upon arrival I was so tired that I don't remember anything, so I have no idea whether hostelbookers was promoted in the hostel or not. I think "don't know" should be an option for those two questions. :)
