If breakfast is available, it will be better.

Hostel response
I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay! We have free cereal and oatmeal every Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. Instead of breakfast in the mornings we offer free alcoholic beverages every night to help our guests socialize with one another. Except on Wednesdays when we have a free pasta dinner, which is another great way to meet other guests. Our guests really enjoy our nightly activities. Hope we see you again!

I chose the hostel based on a previous good experience with HI-hostels. And it really was great: the location was excellent, the staff super helpful, and they had fun events and activities for different nights of the week. I really enjoyed my stay.

Hostel response
We loved having you! I hope you come back soon. In June we're expanding our hostel to include all new 4-bed and 6-bed dorm rooms, as well as private rooms with queen beds, private rooms with bunk beds and private family rooms (one queen bed and one set of bunk beds, sleeps up to 4 people).

The location of the hostel is very good and the staff is nice. However, it is an old building and the female bedroom has too many beds. This means that people will be walking all the time, and, if you get a upper bed, your bed will shake a lot due to the old floor. I had a hard time sleeping, unfortunately.

Hostel response
I'm sorry that you were slightly disappointed with your stay. While the exterior of the building is old (we're in the historical Old City district), the interior is very new and the floors are very solid. It sounds like your bed may be the issued and has been fixed. We have a full-time maintenance person, and every two weeks he inspects every bed. I'm sorry that he didn't get to your before your stay. We usually get many compliments about how quiet our rooms are, I'm sorry if it was noisy during your stay. If you prefer smaller dorm rooms I hope you come back in June when we'll have all new 4-bed and 6-bed dorm rooms, as well as private rooms with queen beds, private rooms with bunk beds and family rooms (private rooms that can sleep up to 4 people).
