Liked: Nice room, big bathroom, free towels and hairdryer.

Disliked: You can't control the air conditioning in your room, there is one control for the whole floor. Can't have your own food and drink, you have to buy it from them. The WiFi was not accessible on the 5th or 4th floor. No smoking area, you actually had to get out of the hostel....

Liked: Safe and secure. easy to find and when it says two minutes from the metro it means two minutes. The location is also great for a base to explore the city. The staff all spoke good english and had an answer for every question i had. The wifi works all over the building and is very fast. Clean hostel and great value for money. Also the daily pub crawl is a good crack and is definitely worth the ten euros it costs.

Disliked: The only thing I can fault is the dip/well in the middle of the showers. They could also be a bit more powerful.

Liked: The staff is amazing! Very very friendly, no issue without solution, fun...just amazing!

Disliked: It seems that the hostel was equiped wth the cheepest possible equipment/ furniture and this a long time ago, which was never ever renuied. The floors in the shared bathrooms are creepy: even just after the cleaning stuff left and you now it must be clean, it looks terrifyijg.

Liked: Very friendly staff. Fit barmaid always help! Bed sheets could do with burning but as someone with low standards this is fair game for the price. Showers a bit hit and miss with temperature, but still for the dollar dollar I'd get over it.
