Liked: There were alot of people here, from young backpackers to elderly people, which was interesting. Sometimes the kitchen space was too noisy because of the young tourists, but I think it's fine. Free pasta is great! Rooms were very spacious and clean too.

Disliked: The sauna. I actually didn't know where I could take off my clothes, cuz the door to the sauna was facing the corridor, where everyone passes by.... I was really tired and also freezed, and was looking forward to using the sauna, but I couldn't...

Liked: Great location and atmosphere - probably one of the most sociable hostels I've ever stayed in. Staff were great too. Bedrooms were comfy.

Disliked: The only slight downside was the bathrooms - there weren't that many and the private ones were a bit of a trek away. Having said that, once you were in there, the showers were good and hot.
