Liked: Clean facilities. Lots of hot water.

Disliked: Very small kitchen. Lack of social atmosphere. Even before the pub crawl few people spent time in the common room. A lot of older people living in the hostel.

Liked: Great staff and "volunteers" working at the hostel, always on hand for assistance and recommendations. The bar area is equipped with a beer pong table, giant Jenga and the like, so is perfect for meeting new people and the beginnings of a night out. The volunteers lead a pub crawl some nights which is seriously good fun, not to be missed! Location is handy, you can walk to everywhere (sights, restaurants, bars, shops, etc.). Dorms are of a decent standard with lockers. Excellent showers.

Liked: Pretty good location. Air-conditioning was awesome since it was really hot when we were there. All in all good considering the money we paid.

Disliked: Our room had no windows!This means that it can get a bit smelly and without fresh air...Privacy in the showers is not great with no locking doors but only a curtain to cover yourself...this might make some feel uneasy but it was not too bad...
