Liked: Acceptable priced (I would considered it expensive in any other city), well located (5-7' walk from the closest subway station), good facilities, clean enough and really helpful staf. Plus, they offer free coffee in the morning.

Disliked: The lack of a kitchen.

Liked: The location was great, the in house cafe was decent, and there were plenty of organised activities. Jerry's grand tour was really good and Jerry himself is a legend.

Disliked: The biggest issue was in room 211 and there was a heater right next to my head that made a lot of noise turning itself on and off all the time. Not good.Other than that, it's just little things. I think the hostel is just too big , which especially combined with the no alcohol rule means there's no real atmosphere. I couldn't work out if I was supposed to get breakfast for free or not. And let's face it, the HI membership thing is silly.

Liked: Big common area, information desk, lots of check in counters, stable wifi (not that fast though), lamp + wall socket at every bed, big lockers, elevator.

Disliked: No bar, you pay for Internet use in the lobby. Due to some booking problem i had to check out at 11 am then check in again at 4 pm after the second night.

Liked: The rooms were spacious and the staff friendly. I asked a lot of questions and they were able to answer all of them. The tours they offer are very good and really cheap, completely worth the money.

Disliked: The common rooms are too big, which makes it difficult to socialize.
