Liked: It was well located and quiet.

Disliked: The shower temperature was difficult to control and scalding. There were no dressers in the rooms. The entire vibe was not that of a hostel as the other travelers did not really mix.

Liked: free coffee, cleanliness, nice area (close to the university :) )

Disliked: The only thing I dislike was our window - its frame was wrong so we couldn't close it totally. Fortunately, there wasn't cold in the room.
