Liked: Its in the middle of the centre, although its about 10 minutes walk to the metro.

Disliked: The staff seem not to care about anything once they have your money in their pockets. They gave no introduction or information at all, any information like the wifi password had to be asked for. The wifi works only in the lobby. There is no atmosphere, the lobby isn't a nice place to hang out and meet people. The place looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a week, the floors everywhere were dirty, and the shower was blocked up with heaps of dirty water. The showers were always cold and had barely no pressure, the water comes out so slowly that in the end I washed my hair in the sink, it was faster, and the shower roof is moldy, condensation forms and drips down on you, its disgusting. Most of the time there was no toilet paper. A bunch of students on my floor were really noisy and kept knocking on my door and running away late at night, I went and told the staff member and he said he couldn't do anything about it, even though the rules say you've gotta be quiet at night and respect others. After I made a fuss he told me to talk to the teachers with the group, but he didn't say anything to her himself, he just didn't seem to care. It was like this every night, people being loud, running in the halls and smoking out the windows so that the whole floor stank like smoke, and the staff did nothing. If it hadn't been high season I would have left after the first night.

Liked: Location is good and, other than the skinny woman serving breakfast, the staff is helpful.

Disliked: It just was not a hostel feel.. The doors to the dining room should be opened to the street for a more social feel and for a breeze.

Liked: It has a central location that is close to some good nightlife.

Disliked: The staff were hit and miss with being helpful. It would have been ideal to have wifi in the rooms and not just in the common area.
