Being my first stay in a hostel I was a little cautious. The unrenovated, construction site interior didn't serve my first impressions well. Furthermore the 4 person room, part of the 8 person dorm was small, cramped, and there was nowhere to put my luggage. However, I soon found a nook to store my bag, bought a lock for my valuables and started to feel a little better. In the heat of summer I imagine sleeping in the upstairs dorm would be quite uncomfortable as no air-con and on 3rd storey.
The included breakfast was satisfactory. Just juice and toast. It would be nice to have cereal as well. The cooking facilities were good. The people staying here were very nice and easy to start a conversation with...might I add, in french. Sheets were clean, but pillows filthy.
Thursday night activites were a lot of fun and, unfortunately, I left before the Sangria and Jello-shot night. One of the greatest things about the hostel was the Nintendo 64...always gave me something to do.
Overall, a cheap but enjoyable place to stay. 10min walk from main bus/metro station so location was good.
