Liked: It was very clean and the beds were great. There were cool curtains around each bed and a little light so you could read late without disturbing others. And also get changed in the dorm!!

Disliked: We did not like the fact that you could not drink on the premesis. And that there were lights out at 11pm, and facilities such as computers and kitchen weren't allowed to be used after 11pm. The staff were unfriendly and strict with the rules.

Liked: I liked the internet access and that it was so close to the metro and the other parts of the city. The location was great, and it was also extremely clean.

Disliked: The staff could sometimes be rude and condescending which is not the greatest impression when you´re not from the country. Although I understand the limited use to the computer after 11pm, I wish they would extend it an extra hour to 12am because the night time is the best time to communicate with my family in the US.

Liked: This hostel is very clean and in a great location. It is small, and not much for meeting people or just hanging out. There is a small kitchen, which was very nice and had everything available to cook. The beds were great, as they had curtains around them for privacy and you could read/use a computer (there is a light in each bunk) at night and not bother others. The staff were friendly and there is free internet on their computers, so it was overall a very nice stay!

Disliked: The bath didn't have good ventilation, so it was always steamy from the showers, and really hot, but it was still nice and clean.

Liked: The property is very clean and has a safe environment. The bathroom and kitchen facilities were exellent, no oven(but who needs that) and free wi-fi. The dorms were good with curtians around the beds so you could get some privacy if wanted.

Disliked: The hostel did not have a common room which means that there was no great place for interaction between the guests. The staff was generally somewhat unhelpful, or they did help you, but it was not with great exitement. There was however some exeptions to this matter among the staffmembers.

Liked: Very clean. Modern design. Curtains around bed were good. Free internet access. In a beautiful old building with original lift.

Disliked: About half an hours walk from the beach, although only ten minutes from main shopping district. Humid shower rooms. Perhaps too clean and minimal; on the edge of impersonal- although this is a minor point.

Liked: Great location, right on the metro that takes you to the beach. No curfew and very helpful staff. The computer access was great also. Very clean.

Disliked: The noise on the street at night was bad and the subway runs underneath the building so you can hear it. Also the directions to the location were shaky. No sign on the building where you were to arrive.

Liked: Extremely clean, and overall nice. Beds are very comfortable and the curtains make it feel very private. I wish we could have stayed longer, but the place booked up before we could extend our stay!

Disliked: Lobby computers off at 11pm. So if you have a laptop, or iphone its not a problem because they have free wifi.

Liked: The interior design was very nice and the building that it was in was old and good looking. The bathrooms, kitchen and bedrooms were all top notch and the curtains around the beds made for the most private dorm experience.

Disliked: I disliked that the internet is turned off abruptly nightly. I lost a message that took 30 mins to type because a staffmember turned off the router as I was still at the computer sending the message. Also another staffmember made us change rooms on the second day because of his mistake, requesting us to pull apart the beds we`d made and make the beds again, without any offer of help or reparations.

Liked: Really friendly staff. It is quite small so not a great chance to meet lots of other people. No common room except the kitchen area so nowhere really to socialize. I loved the little curtains round the beds- really easy to get some quiet, privacy and space. The only thing is that the beds are rubbish. Everytime the person in the top bunk turned over, it made the bottom bunk swing and sway- almost reminiscent of being in Taiwan when an earth quake struck!!! Had a very pleasant time there though.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
