  • Very friendly staff. Was given a quick tour when arrived. Lots of power points and pretty close to the city centre.

  • Nice to have a place that actually provides high-speed wifi, and doesn't just advertise it. I was a little surprised at the amount of noise from the street at night (I arrived on a Friday), but once I found the earplugs that wasn't an issue. Might be worth mentioning at some point -- maybe in the walk-through with people checking in on a Friday or Saturday.

  • Some of the staff was accommodating and helpful however that was not the case with all of them and that in itself made it a very unpleasant experience. A bit pricy for a run down hostel.
