Showers are on the small side for tall people. No individual electrical/USB sockets per bed. Lockers are old fashioned and noisy. Wifi does not reach down into the rooms and mine quit before I checked out. Free breakfast is nice, fewer activities and free dinners than I remember from 2 years ago. Seems to be only once a week now. Compared to others seems overpriced and not as green as they make it out to be. Time for innovation!

It was a nice place and quiet close to the city centre but one thing that I felt was the lack of backpacker armospehere, there was no party culture especially on weekends ot gets so bored.

It is a really big hostel, it occupies 3 floors on a building that is ridiculously well located. The breakfast is ok, not much variety though. The rooftop is really nice if you're a smoker and to socialize as well. I didn't find it easy to engage with conversations or hangout with people cause the place is really big.

The hostel was located at the center of city and it was super convenient for food and shopping. Bathrooms and public areas were clean, but seat covers were dirty.

Great location, wifi, good sized kitchen. Lacks a bit of ambiance/atmosphere. Access to the rooms without going through reception not really secure :( Shower room a bit awkward: have to leave your items outside of the cabins.

The Greenhouse was excellent in almost every way: the beds are comfy, bathrooms clean and kitchens well stocked with crockery etc. The free breakfast is constantly replenished until 9am so it won't run out. My only (minor) complaints are that there are no windows in the rooms (throws off the circadian rhythms a bit!), and no plug points next to the beds. There are power points in the room but items are in full view of everyone. You can always use the lobby power points, though.

This hostel was nice and clean. It did the job, however didn't feel homely and lacked atmosphere. The staff didn't attempt to interact with customers. Otherwise a pleasant stay and excellent location.

Great location, great staff, good value for money and great for international and serious travellers. However Lacked atmosphere and rooms were stuffy with no windows, beside lights kept the whole room awake, could have been cleaner, seemed to be a lot of long term stayers compared to other hotels. All in would stay again for the value aspect.

Great location, free wifi for the period you're staying (only really works on one floor though). Unfortunately had a rude brunette lady on reception with no manners which impacted our stay. Private room was average, similar to a jail cell with no windows. VERY thin walls, can hear neighbour's conversations clearly. Cool rooftop area and large lobby too.
