Liked: The price

Disliked: Stairs .Breakfast was not extraordinary but for the money you pay it is ok.The Chinese guy at the reception didnt' want to give back the 10 Euros Italian guests gave as deposit for the key because he said the amount is usually 5 Euros. In spite of the fact that the Italians said that the Chinese girl of the reception didnt have change for the 10 Euros note they gave and kept the 10 telling them they will give them back the 10 finally the Italians left without getting the 5 Euros difference back , they only got 5 because the other girl of ther reception was not available on phone to confirm it .The chinese guy ot the reception was not enough kingd and helpful to the guests.

Liked: wasnt too far from the main city attractions and was very close to the trams.

Disliked: having only one room key between 8 people in the dorm room. the scary steps to lug my suitcase up and down, the fact that I got ripped off by paying way over priced rates for New Years eve and day.

Liked: nothing!

Disliked: maybe it is just the city, you will meet tourists who bring in the stuff to eat or smoke and that stinks up the entire room, the smell sticks on your clothings far off from the central station but it was quiet at night. limited choices of food nearby, only attractions nearby are the heinkein experience and van gogh museum u have to pay for even the use of their luggage room? at least this is a first for me after having travelled to many cities and countries lower deck beds were bad! clearance was so low, u cannot even sit slouched! toilets were perpetually clogged with hair and other stuff
