Liked: Wifi in the dorm rooms is excellent. The staff are very helpful and made sure my lost luggage from my flight arrived safe and sound at reception. Great central location, a short walk from the train station.

Disliked: It can't be helped, but there are some shady characters in the area. Mainly just junkies asking for money. So going outside for a smoke can be a pain in the ass.

Liked: In all honesty the hostel is fine. I read mixed reviews. Yes it could be a little cleaner but I have definitely stayed at worse places, some people exaggerate a lot on this. Atmosphere was really good. Nice bar and restaurant. Location couldn't be better, good nightlife downstairs and around the area. Good kitchen facilitates and a decent living room/common area to hang out. Staff are really helpful and friendly.

Disliked: Bathrooms could do with a refurbish but as a traveler I didn't find them that bad.Can be a bit noisy but again for me it wasn't a problem.
