If you fear the cold, this is the place to be - it's BOILING, all the time! Nice quirky common areas and personal touches; incredibly clean, with excellent facilities. A couple of the staff were quite unfriendly and condescending, but the rest were lovely and helpful. Something fun/interesting going on in the bar most nights. Great security, and the best possible location. Overall, the best hostel I've ever stayed in. :)
