    The location was perfect

    The bathroom was not really clean most of the time. The bunk beds are made out of steal and sqeak a lot if someone's moves. The light on the floors are always on and really bright so if you have to open the door to your room at night it's super light

    Not sure

    From the start having to pay 4 dollars a night more coz am not a member ,told if I went online and joined could get part refund felt like preassure driven to join. First two nights been kept awake as eveytime anybody needs to go to WC bright light from hallway straight in eyes wakes you up. Clains of Ecofriendly extreme breakfast package and washer drier all takes 45 min a short wash dry was not possible. On 6th at 10 pm male staff member without knocking enters our all female room due to beds being allocated to wrong people needed to sort it out and then after this at around 2 am another male staffmember whilst we are asleep does the same thing. Next morning pointed out to reception that it was inapropriate for a male to appear in the middle of night in female only dorm , was told that it needed to be done if people are sleeping in wrong beds thus not wanting to be accountable for inapropriate action. I have in hostels all ove4 Europe and would not recommend this one.

    Clean and comfortable. The only reason I didn’t give this an excellent score was I wanted to check out a day early and to stay somewhere else the second night and I asked someone at the front desk whether my second day reservation could be refunded and she said yes absolutely come back before nine and we will refund it so based on that information I went ahead and reserved another hotel but then when I came back to get my refund I was told by a different person no, you had a nonrefundable reservation so I ended up paying for two different places.

    Beds are very noisy/squeaky, every move makes a noise (and we had only a double room). Some people on reception were very Unfriendly and didn't even want to change me a 20$ for the vending machine. There was a confusion with the keycards, so we woke up because some girl accidentally got in our room at night. Because of this they evidently deactivated my room cards, so when I came back from the bathroom in the middle of the night (around 2pm) I couldn't get back in my room and had to go down and get a new room card...
