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.

Liked: The staff was very friendly and you get free breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the meals are pretty tasty, it saves you money on going out and buying food. Sometimes they run out of food so get in line early. They have a happy hour twice a day and a group of people from there goes out every night to a club or pub crawl or something else so if you don't know what to do you can tag along and it should be a good time. The lockers are good and free so your stuff is safe. The room gets hot so leave the windows open at night (the air conditioner didnt work when i was there) Overall it was a good time and i would definitely stay here again.

Disliked: The hostel is a "party" hostel but the bar closes at around 130am/2am which wasn't too great because it means that all the area where you can sit down with other people is closed too so you're stuck hanging in the room waking people up or in the hallways after going out if you're not tired. The only outlets are up there too (or the bathroom) so it annoying that you can't charge your phone to set your alarms for an early flight etc if you were out all day and didn't have time to charge it. It's not a big deal though, just need to know ahead of time so you can plan ahead.
