Liked: ...

Disliked: There was no WiFi even though this is advertised. It isn't in the city centre - it's 3 stops out! You can't get the train after dark as it's too dangerous, so you're very limited. The train station nearby is beside a bridge and isn't well lit. I felt unsafe walking to and leaving the station. There was no one else in my dorm for 3 nights, which isn't good when you want to meet people. The bar below is so loud that it's hard to get asleep. I decided to cook a pizza in the kitchen. I opened the oven and about 10 insects crawled out. Disgusting!!
