At first, I was devastated to come here - the rooms are very dirty (probably the yuckiest I've seen)and I'm not sure but it looked like mold all over the windowsills. However, the common areas are nice - the rooftop has beautiful lights and thousands of bats fly over your head every night, the basement has a large TV and the foodarea is nice. What I lacked was some privacy, but the lack of privacy also made people socialize more and the atmosphere was Great. I met so many nice and interesting people there, that I had probably never even talked to if I stayed at a larger hostel like YHA. Breakfast was nice - toasts with a variety of marmelades and peanutbutter. The hostel also has some kind of event every night which is nice - like free hot chocolate or free nachos - yummy!
