Liked: The fact that it is right in the city centre is super convenient,

Disliked: the street it is on is a bit dodgy, and it is bordering on a pretty sketchy area. The elevator is super slow, so getting up to the top floor is a bit of a chore. it could also stand to be a bit cleaner. WiFi didn't quite reach my room, but that might just be because I was on the furthest corner of the hostel.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Everything, but will mention a few things: 1. Really unfriendly staff, they don't care about their guests at all. They didn't answer any of our questions, instead they refered us to the internet. 2. The showers didn't work 3. It was mold on the toiletseat... 4. ... and it smelled like pee on the fifth floor. 5. The little breakfast that they said were included is basically bad pancake dough that you have to look for by yourself. 6. The relevantly high price for what you get, it's not worth more than 5 dollars per night in my opinion. Go somewere else so someone can close this thing down!

Liked: great location and it's got some character.

Disliked: cleanliness was terrible! I understand that it is an old building, but one shower and one toilet on each floor is not enough!! Especially, when there is mould in the bathrooms and they are very dirty and old. PLEASE renovate the bathrooms.

Liked: The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly with great recommendations of places to visit and good restaurants in the local area and further afield. The location was perfect in walking distance of most key locations and a 2 minute walk from the tram to Fisherman's Wharf - absolutely perfect!

Disliked: I didn't dislike anything it was clean and easily accessible I felt it was good value for money and great for a few days stay in the city....
