Liked: Well located, easy to find and provided the basic needs - a bed, a toilet, washing facilities and a kitchen. Not much above and beyond that but for the price it did the basic stuff well. Even a decent spread for breakfast included.

Disliked: Not all that secure in terms of places to keep your stuff or access to the property. Could do with some more plugs near beds for charging purposes. The shower and hot taps had one setting - burn the skin from your flesh.

Liked: Very friendly staff, great location and prices.

Disliked: There is not much atmosphere for partying which some people might miss, I was there for work so did not mind. There are a lot of longer-term stayers which may be a reason. The bathrooms were clean, but some were much older. There is a lot of variability in the hostel (Ask for Room 7!). very few plugs in the rooms, like maybe two tops.

Liked: It was quiet and close to the train station.

Disliked: No lights in the bathrooms which makes showering difficult at night. The staff are aware but still haven't put new lightbulbs. The drains are not great so you end up standing in water. There is an older woman working there that is really rude.

Liked: I liked everything. The bedrooms are tidy and well arranged. There is enough space for the luggage. What I love most is the attention to the detail: the bathrooms are constantly checked and cleaned, as well as the bathrooms, the showers and the living room. Breakfast is surprisingly abudant and the staff is very kind and does its best to help you out. I felt very comfortable and safe.Also the kitchen is well equipped with pans, pots and dishes to let you cook your own meal.

Disliked: The fridge is a bit tiny, considered the number of people staying.
