Liked: Good atmposhere and location

Disliked: I booked a female dorm and got a mixed one (the reception insisting that in my room there were only girls but it was not the case), the bathroom was really dirty, no sheets. The kitchen opens very late, at 8 (all tours leave around 7, you can even not have breakfast). The kitchen has NOTHING (even not a boiler for tea/coffee), insects are everywhere.

Liked: Reception staff were great. They accommodated for my last min booking and late arrival. As well as a kitchen, there was a kitchenette within the room!

Disliked: I booked a 6 bed all girls dorm, another couple booked a 4 bed dorm and we all ended up in an 8 bed mixed dorm paying different prices...
