Poor water pressure on some showers. Food was average but staff are friendly and the lounge is a great place to chill out.

die Wastebins in der Gästeküche sollten selbst regelmäßig gereinigt werden, der Geruch ist grauselig, da macht Kochen keinen Spaß! Das Kochgeschirr ist historisch und wenn man es aus den unteren Schrankfächern nimmt, spült man es vor der Benutzung lieber auch noch einmal, wenn man die Ungezieferfallen im Schrank sieht...

Excellent location, a busy hostel which often led to queues at main desk. THe communal areas were large and clean. THe en suite in our room had a horrible smell!
