Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful. They have a phone for free use! I could get my boyfriend to call me on the number. Really great. Drinks and snacks and things for sale at the hostel.

Disliked: No powerpoint (outlet) anywhere near my bunk so I couldn't charge my things unless it was across the room, which I don't like for safety reasons. The shower was a bit broken, the water would only come half out of the shower head and remain coming out of the bath tap.
