    We had a great time at the Friendly AQP. Very chill and relaxing atmosphere and the tours they run were very good. There's movies, a pool table, table tennis, and a kitchen. Wifi seemed to work everywhere. It's very relaxing so if you're looking for a party walk down to the wild rover hostel instead and then return to friendly AQP for some quiet and peace.
