Liked: The bedside cupboards, plug sockets, and reading light by the bed was great. The bathroom facilities were clean and I never had to wait to use the bathroom. Breakfast was great, but u expected it to be due to the price I paid for the hostel. Overall, it was a good stay.

Disliked: The fact we were not allowed to use the locker room after we'd checked out. I've never stayed in a hostel where they've not provided this facility.

Liked: The hostel has a really good location. Most of the sights are in walking distance. Staff is friendly and helpful and the common area is really stylish. The breakfast is really good and you get a lot of free stuff.

Disliked: The bathrooms always seemed to be dirty - no matter at what time you went in. When I arrived I found black hair on my sheets (I am blonde). Common area was clean.
