Liked: There was very high security, the bathrooms were kept very clean and there were lots of facilities on offer including breakfast, a kitchen,internet and the WiFi was great.

Disliked: When it said private showers I expected one in the room but it was referring to their individual showers. Also there was not powerpoints close to the bed.

Liked: Great hostel, with lovely atmosphere & incredibly helpful & friendly staff. Very clean & tidy, in a great location. Kitchen facilties & the various common room areas were great (especially handy for recovering from the night before after checking out!) It was a pleasure to stay here.

Disliked: A few more toilets & shower rooms would've been handy, especially upstairs as walking through the kitchen & common room in pjs wasn't ideal (a very minor issue though!)

Liked: Looks like they do a good job of encouraging activities and fun, but I wasn't there for long enough to try those things out.

Disliked: Many rooms are in the basement with very little natural light. Private showers are in demand and the non-private mens ones had almost see-though opaque glass between cubicles. Why would anybody think installing those is a good idea. Also breakfast is only 1 small sandwhich, a glass of juice, and tea or coffee; and it's policed so you can't have any more than that. No cereal at all, no bread meat and spreads. It's not worth it at all IMO, but at least they gave me a refund when I declined to have it.

Liked: Excellent hostel! Comfy beds, lots of great little areas to hang out. Curtain on some beds if you need privacy. Clean and plenty of showers!

Disliked: Sheets cost extra and there was no toilet in the room I was in or lockers. However they are both just outside the door.

Liked: Good location, super helpful staff and comfortable rooms. There is an awesome atmosphere in the lounge and kitchen every night, great place to meet fellow travellers. No keys and changing door codes. Free pasta and wifi.

Disliked: Not allowed to play music or drink in the lounge after 11pm. In a country where some bars don't even open until midnight, this seems a little lame.

Liked: great really clean place. would definitely recommend to others.

Disliked: only thing is that we were given the wrong passcode to enter the hostel as were arriving after hours but they rectified that by giving us free linen :) we ended up getting the right code from someone else staying there who was heading back into the hostel.

Liked: Fantastic location really close to the main train and bus stations. Nice individual showers and toilets, large kitchen.

Disliked: Advertised a Swedish Meatballs experience and discounted tickets to the Ice Bar, neither of these activites happened and we were not told in advance despite being booked on them. Dorms have very little natural light being on the basement level and to get to the showers had to go out of the security door. Hostel was being worked on at the time of our stay due to a flood so no tv room, nowhere really to socialise with other guests.
