Liked: Pretty much everything.

Disliked: Breakfast should be more Continental and provide more variety. It is located in Tenderlion, worst area in town, full of weirdos, freaks, drunk, homelesses, prostitues, ... Rather than that, the hostel is pretty Amazing. Staff is super.

Liked: the kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of day trips and nights out run by the hostel.

Disliked: the lack of air flow in the room makes it incredibly hot and leaves a bad smell in the room. Having to show your card to reception upon entry to the hostel every time, just install a card reader so there's no need to wait for a member of staff to see you as there are times when you end up waiting to get in.
