Liked: The free breakfast is really helpful for when you are traveling around.

Disliked: I found the staff behind reception a bit socially awkward, and the other guests weren't particularly chatty either, e.g. not many people introduced themselves despite staying in the same dorm as us.

Liked: A good breakfast is provided daily and starts very early for those who want. The free dinner was excellent, way beyond what I had expected. The location couldn't be better, right in the middle of downtown but still quiet enough to sleep when you need to. Lots of social activities are organised for those interested, altogether a great hostel.

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.
