Liked: Wonderful location, friendly staff, value for money!

Disliked: It's an old property lacking a common room but this does not amount to a critique as its location implies that everything one might be lacking is within a 5 minute walk

Liked: Great location, right in the heart of the city. Close to shops, markets and the all important cafes.

Disliked: The dreaded stairs, I was only on the 1st floor but the mountainous climb isn't what you need when you've visited a few cafes or bars. The single shared bathroom isn't perfect either, but the shower does have hot water constantly.

Liked: The staff were very friendly, always someone there. Tea and coffee available during the day. Rooms were small but clean. We stayed in a private twin room, it had 2 beds and a basin, toilets/showers were shared. Typical narrow stairs, so be prepared to squeeze your luggage upstairs! Awesome cat called Murphy, very playful for those who missed their own pets...

Disliked: Nothing wrong due to the hotel, just the smell of smoke in the halls sometimes!

Liked: The hostel is nicely located to the main sights and the train station! There are plenty of caffees around too. The staff are great and very helpfull, so do not hesitate to ask)) My room itself was quite small, but I didn't spend too much time there anyway, and all the facilities were working perfectly.

Disliked: It might be a bit loud in the evening and at night, but that's the price you pay for a central location I think
