Liked: Great location, you can do almost everything by walking. The hoste atmosphere is great and the bunk beds are actually good because they do not shake.

Disliked: Bad wifi and terrible staff. They were always with a bad face and didn't make an effort to help me with questions about the city. Barely saw an smile. To be fair, on the day of my check out I saw some different staff and they looked better.

Liked: Location was great, staff were friendly. The free dinner was a pleasant surprise.

Disliked: Rooms don't have air conditioning so it gets hot. There are fans for each bed so that was cool, sleeping wasn't a problem but if you are not on your bed it's quite hot.
