Liked: I do not know where to put it, but people complaining about the cleanliness should be aware that the staff does all they can to provide a clean hostel. If it is not clean this is a result of the guests being filthy. It should not be too much asked for to clean your own dishes properly.

Disliked: minor complaint: the stream of the shower at the second floor could be more steady :)

Liked: Staff were really helpful and the location was good

Disliked: Cleanliness was poor. Toilets didn't have wash hand basins, showers dirty, kitchen and fridges need cleaning more often. Facilities and rooms acceptable in 1970's but look basic now
