Liked: Fantastic location! Friendly guests, some staff are very welcoming and helpful.

Disliked: Coin operated everything. Impersonal. No towels even to hire, you have to buy a crappy beach towel. There is a bar which is nice but no proper common room to chill out. The one window in my tiny 8 bed dorm was bolted shut so the room stank.

Liked: It was the most fun hostel we stayed at in Europe. We met a ton of people. They have a bar in the hostel and it is huge and really easy to meet people. If you are a single traveller I think it would be especially good. When they take you to the clubs it is also nice. I loved it.

Disliked: Well I didnt dislike anything, but I think it is definately a party hostel, so if you are travelling to see sights and want the light in the room off at 8pm... maybe dont stay here. But It is in the best location and a very good choice.

Liked: The location is perfect

Disliked: The room with 20 people is disgusting, the smell when you enter to the room was sick.. The other thing is that the rooms didn't have plug-ins to recharge bateries. The last is that not every floor has a shower, so you have to go to the 4th to shower.

Liked: It has a very good location, the breakfast is good, and there are complimentary dinners if you get to the bar in time,

Disliked: Where do I start? No wi-fio and internet was 2 euro an hour. However, the machine to add more time to your account was broken, and the staff didn't care nor had any idea how to fix it. The staff in general are apathetic and unhelpful except when organising social events. The walls are very thin, the square it's situated on is loud and the staff don't care when other people have loud parties in other rooms and in the doorways until 2am. That's not an exaggeration. Good for partyers for 1 or 2 nights but a terrible place for a serious traveller.

09 October 2010 Mya would recommend this property

Liked: There was a great atmosphere. There is a lounge/cafeteria area with computers where breakfast and dinner is served. It's a great place to meet people while eating, or just hanging out over some beers that they sell at the hostel bar. It was clean and they gave you information on anything you need. They take you out to clubs, cutting the lines, and avoiding you paying cover charges. The one thing is that it's a youth hostel, so it's not great sleep.

Disliked: If you want a good night sleep, this isn't the place for you.
