Liked: The bar was a great place to meet people and there were many events organized.

Disliked: IF YOU STAY AT THIS HOSTEL YOU WILL GET THINGS STOLEN UNLESS YOU ARE EXTREMELY VIGILANT!!! The lockers are electronic and DO NOT WORK PROPERLY!! I got my cash stolen from inside the locker that appeared to all my best judgement to be locked. The staff would not do anything about their faulty lockers. I know at least 5 other people staying in or around my room that got their things stolen. Also, I've been told by other travellers that this hostel is frequently robbed. So BEWARE!!!

Liked: I really enjoyed the atmosphere at the hostel, it was a lot of fun. The staff promoted fun, and it was as fun as you wanted it to be.

Disliked: At this property, I disliked the fact that the Internet was down. Having an Internet connection to chat with family is very important. Also, having the Internet connection enabled in the rooms would be helpful since the common room is closed off during certain hours.

Liked: Great location- and breakfast and dinner is included! Very easy to meet people.

Disliked: No comfortable living space. Bar music too loud during the day and no plugs except on the main floor. Could not relax in the hostel and as a woman traveling alone- did not feel particularly safe .
