Liked: This was a good hostel to stay at as it was very easy to get there from the airport.

Disliked: The shower doors did not close properly and some of the shower heads had no holder so you could not have a regular shower. I would expect better shower facilities for the price.

Liked: Good location, close to subway. Good for backpackers to meet other travelers.

Disliked: Pod dorm room was freezing cold and dark. Only a curtain separating the mixed dorm from the female dorm. Breakfast included was toast -not very good. Staff wasn't the greatest, seemed uninterested in helping or answering questions. Compared to other hostels , you could probably find more value for your money at a different hostel.

Liked: Free breakfast and wifi.

Disliked: The bed are in a pod format, each one with own power point. Storage areas for bags are limited and the corridors between pod sections are crowded with people's things. The toilet and shower facilities need repair; doors falling off, etc. Wifi is a bit sketchy too. Generally not bad though.
