I realized later in my stay that the person who checked me in at the desk did not give me WiFi info, e.g., network name and password, and did not tell me that a breakfast of cereal or oatmeal was provided in the main kitchen from Fri-Sun, so I wound up paying for breakfast myself outside of the hostel. I miss having someone at the desk in the other building. There is too much that does not get communicated at reception.

Everything about the hostel was good. It would be even better if breakfast was included and there was a free guided tour of the neighbourhood like there are in many HI in the US.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! Instead of breakfast we offer free things at night such as a free pasta dinner on Wednesdays, a free open bar on Thursdays, a free wine and cheese soiree on Saturdays and free beer the other nights. We do offer a free tour of the neighbourhood every Monday and Friday night. We have two large activities boards in the hostel, it's too bad that you didn't take a look to see what activities we offer or ask one of our receptionists.
