Liked: That it was small and nice and the common room in the cellar was very nice furnished.

Disliked: No Wi-Fi, but their reason for not having Wi-Fi is pretty good. Nevertheless, it is a little bit inconvenient.

Liked: Tuesday is Pizza and Games night, which was fun and enjoyable and a good way to meet other travellers.

Disliked: Luggage had to be stored in office which was a bit inconvenient but there was always a member of staff there, so it was secure and you did get used to it.

Liked: The staff is so friendly! It was awesome, you could always ask them and they were always in a good mood! We also loved that there was a kitchen and a huge chill out room with even a TV. And that you can't bring Big luggage into the rooms is not a big deal, they give you bags to bring the important stuff upstairs and take care of your luggage. I really liked that.

Liked: Great location? Staff made somew good suggestions of things to do.

Disliked: It was 37 degrees when I stayed, and no air con, but the fans provided were not enough to cool the whole room. Could have had a few snore activities arranged so easier to meet other travelers when on your own.
