Liked: Price. Friendly stuff.

Disliked: It was dirty. The sagging floor - when somebody walked in the room the beds were 'dancing'. Very poor breakfast.

Liked: The reception was open 24 hours which was very convenient since my sister and I checked in at 11pm. Luggage storage was free (yay!) and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The sun room on the main floor was really nice to chill in.

Disliked: There was NO soap in the bathrooms. :( Also, the reception area looked nice and professional, but the rooms were bare (no table and only one chair in a dorm room) and there were no shower curtains or doors. The bathrooms weren't in the best shape.

Liked: Nice lounge area.

Disliked: Our room was pretty cold, even in summer. There are no lockers in the rooms, you have to leave your stuff (if you want to put it in a locker) in a kind of luggage room next to the reception and there were hardly any lockers left.

Liked: Some people hate the bar type of hostels but I think they're excellent, especially when traveling alone. It made it easy to meet people (if you wanted to) and it's always nice to not have to walk far for a cheap drink. Staff very helpful. Good location close to a Carrefour, the botanical garden, Botanique metro station and the north train station.

Disliked: No wifi in the rooms, too few power outlets in each room (in my room there was one, and it didn't work).

Liked: Alright for a place to kip for the night. Free breakfast which is always a bonus. A little bar and pool table good for socialising

Disliked: The rooms are outside which means getting wet if it rains and walking across the courtyard to go to the toilet at night. The showers are downstairs in the building which was a bit scary at night. Also the courtyard outside the bar meant people talking outside just where you were sleeping

Disliked: the free buffet was okey at best, could have been better.the price is a little high, if it was lower this could have been one of the best hostels I have stayed in.
