Liked: Close to train n bus station

Disliked: The ´free walking tour´was disorganised and guide kept smoking which made me keep my distance. Kitchen was tiny and cramped. No wifi in rooms. Had to pay 2EUR to use the small locker which the staff had the key to, which meant anyone can ask for ´their´locker to be opened. Very expensive and unsafe. Had to throw used toilet paper in the bin, not into the toilet bowl. People kept smoking at the open door of hostel which meant the interior was smoke filled most times

Liked: The hostel is very well located, just next the bus station or train station, and right in the center. It has a terrace which in summer must be great ot use. Staff was helpful but just for the basic (hard to get a smile...) There is a good atmosphere within the staff (it feels that they are big family)

Disliked: The atmosphere was really strange, hard to socialize, as most people there are actually part of the staff and know each other, and dont really care about travelers. The facilities were very old, the bed I got was probably the worse with a mattress that was shaped in V after too long usage probably, leaving just the nice feeling of the metal spring in the back. Also the beds were very noisy. There was just one "shower" (just a tap in the bathroom, and you have to remove the water afterwards by yourself) on the floor for like 15 people, and no hot water. That would be normally acceptable for a very cheap hostel, as the confort is not what to be looked for. But for this price, it could be expected better...

Liked: The staff were very kind and welcoming, always available if you just wanted to chat and have a joke, very helpfulwith onward travel bookings and advice. The staff were always cleaning and did their best to keep the kitchen and bathroom tidy ..... as most guests seem incapable of these simple tasks !!!

Disliked: the dorms are a bit stuffy and no air conditioner just one small fan in the dorm.

Liked: Great location and facilities. Everyone respects the noise curfew which made for such peaceful night's sleep in a comfy bed. The hostel is very well-maintained and clean. Breakfast was yummy.

Disliked: The staff were a little bit clique-y when they were all socialising together, but for the most part they were great.

Liked: I liked the location, the atmosphere of the hostel, the staff, who was very friendly and relaxed. the bathrooms were very clean and quite big, also the rooms, who had lockers. I also liked that we clould leave our laguage there after we checked out in a locker.

Disliked: I didn't like that we only got one part of the bed clothes (the coverlet) but no sheets and no pillow case. And the sleeping bags weren't allowed, so we had to sleep in "dirty" beds.
