Liked: They clean the rooms everyday and make our beds. They also serve breakfast, lunch and dinner included. The lounge is a great area to hang out, there are always lots of people and good music. The location is incredibly good!

Disliked: They took all the wall sockets from the rooms, so you can only charge your phone (or any electronic device) downstairs at the lounge. They said it is for safety reasons, because a lot of devices were being stolen in the rooms.

Liked: I loved the location, that part of it was great. The storage lockers in the room were really big, very easy to fit my huge bag inside. The key system with magnets was really good, made me feel secure and knowing that no one could get at my things. Free breakfast lunch and dinner if you get there on time, and the free walking tour with Ben was great! very informative and funny as well.

Disliked: It is just overwhelmingly large. I wanted to stay at a hostel with a good atmoshpere, and it is only alright here.. The sheer number of people really crowds the common area. There are also no outlets in the bedrooms, but there are some downstairs. There was construction in our room so the workers kept coming in and out all the time. The 22 bed dorms are really cramped once people have their things laying all over the place.

Liked: This is the craziest you'll ever stay! So, if you don't like partying hard forget this hostel. The bar downstairs is amazing during the night, you simply don't need to go anywhere else to have fun. What is best: apart from the breakfast, they serve lunch and dinner, amazing!

Disliked: If someday you don't want to go out and sleep early... i'm sorry, you won't be able.
