Liked: Very clean and right in the middle of the city center. They organize fun activities like a free pasta dinner which makes it very easy to meet people.

Disliked: The dorm was very big which gives you a less safe feeling.

Liked: Friendly staff - helpful and knowledgeable. Key code to get through doors so it was safe. Great communal areas; lots of seating, computers, TV, darts, chess, foosball table, kitchen and vending machines downstairs. The hostel offer 'nights' and on the day we stayed, it was wine and cheese for FREE! Mixed dorm with shared bathroom - both were very clean. Clean linen (that you had to put on and strip when you checked out - not a problem for us), towels and lamp/socket area on each bed. Great location; 5 minute walk from train station and very close to all the sights.

Disliked: The main stairway to get up and down was also where the rubbish was placed until it was taken outside so it smelt quite bad. Considering this is the only way up and down to your room and the main door, it could have done with a lot of air freshener! Ideally the rubbish could be placed somewhere else but if not, then scented ANYTHING should be put on each level of the stairs!

The property's response is

I'm really happy that you enjoyed your stay! I just want to clarify that we don't keep our garbage in the stairway. Housekeeping will sometimes leave a bag in the stairway as they move from floor to floor, but this is only between noon and 2 pm, and the rubbish in the bag is from the rooms and rarely contains anything particularly smelly. Sorry that you had the bad timing to not only use the stairs in a rare time that there was a trash bag, but also that it had something smelly in it!
