Big is right. Feels a little impersonal but not a bad place

A lovely hostel in a good location for the Waterfront but the Wifi was a big problem here, with lots of people trying to use it at once and the result being that hardly anyone was able to use the Internet!

It seems that this place may have been a lot nicer in the past, and since then things have somehow gone south a little bit.. It's kind of all over the shop, staff included. Strange atmosphere. Breakfast is cheapest possible stuff.. Internet was as good as no internet at all, since they only allow a handful of people to connect the network at times, so you might have to wait up to half an hour, and even then it disconnects constantly. There are much better places out there..
