The guests could be a bit tidier in the room, but I guess that&#39;s what you get when being in a hostel. Lol
The common rooms were good. The bar down stair was great, albeit a little over priced.

Pancakes were very nice in the morning. The beanbags in the TV room were a nice touch. The hairdryer in the bathroom was much appreciated.

Location. The room and the private bathroom was clean.
The surroundings was very noisy - it was hard to sleep. Guests in other rooms were very inconsiderate; yelling and slamming doors in the middle of the night.
