Liked: Good location, nice garden/courtyard to chill in. Also, just a very cheap place so that's nice.

Disliked: Staff wasn't unfriendly but just didn't seem to care so much. Also dorm was really cramped with beds, barely any walking space.

Liked: -***extremely helpful staff, when we wanted to switch out of the dorm room -good location, everything can be reached by foot. Smaller grocery stores are close by, as well as bars and restaurants. -clean, nothing to complain about here. Very nice cleaning ladies. -our room was nice and colorful

Disliked: -the lady who opened up the breakfast room, was very unfriendly (she was about 45min late with opening the kitchen, therefore we just entered through the courtyard) -it's a bit funny, that some of the upstairs rooms have very low ceilings (roof pitch) - but it's not too much of a problem.... -saturday night, it was quite noise due to other guests (pre-)partying (even in March) - just remember to bring earplugs (as in every hostel I guess)

Liked: Being a new hostel, it's perfectly clean and the design is quite nice: awesome balcony and courtyard, and a good number of bathrooms with good showers. Well-stocked kitchen. Location is not quite what is claimed - it's about a 10-minute walk to the fish market - but it is conveniently located between the old town and the bus/train stations.

Disliked: Security was really lax. The first thing I was told on arrival was "the bedrooms are NEVER to be locked"... and the reception is quite often unattended for 15-20 minutes... and the luggage storage is a matter of 'put your bags in that corner there'. Also, this isn't so much a hostel as a motel with dorm rooms, so there's no communal atmosphere. I would probably only recommend to families travelling on a budget.
