Liked: It was in a good location. It was generally clean,

Disliked: The staff were unaware of general tourist information. The hostel provided brouchers but were out of English brouchers. The only place to fill a water bottle was in the bathrooms. (wouldnt allow you to use the kitchen. Not a great place to meet fellow travellers if travelling alone.

Liked: It's really close to the city centre, really clean

Disliked: It's not a great place to stay if you're traveling alone or on a budget. There's no kitchen to cook your own food either so you really have to eat out

Liked: It is easy to find.

Disliked: We were double booked so instead of a 6 dorm room we were placed in a 22 dorm and the only discount we got because of it was the 6 franc it costs extra if you don't have the youth hostel card.....The whole place seemed like a boarding school, not very personal at all.

Liked: Great that breakfast and bed linen etc was included in the price.

Disliked: Showers were either scolding hot or freezing cold, but that might have been the time that I chose to shower (evening).The hostel is situated down quite a few steps and a slope which is hard work to go back up with a heavy backpack - there is the funicular, but doesn't seem worth the money for the distance.I was given the key to the luggage room without having to prove that I was staying at the hostel and without having to show identification to prove it was my bag that I was taking from the room.
