Liked: The location is amendable to the main attractions in the centre of the city. Close to a subtle station.

Disliked: The hostel was very drab and lacked any atmosphere. The whole hostel smelt like smoke and none of the rooms had any windows for natural light or ventilation. One of the staff members was friendly, however another was not at all welcoming and helpful. The showers have only a small curtain that opens on to the rest of the bathroom. Whilst the building is old and has an element of character a lot of work needs to be done. The WiFi was very very slow.

Liked: The hostel is beautiful! It is in an old restored building. It has a wonderful location in the center and is close to everything you need. The views from the roof and the balcony of my dorm were great. The breakfast was wonderful! The 4 bedroom dorm was clean, quiet, and had a nice breeze so I was never hot.

Disliked: The kitchen was a little small.
