    Everything was gr8 apart from the male cleaner who knocked on the bathroom door every few minutes towards the end of my shower. I wasn't even in that long and it wasn't after check out time. Also I am a female, this was a black male who made me feel very threatened and intimidated as even after I opened the door to see what he wanted he continued to continiously knock! It was right next to the females bedroom so I was quite worried for my safety after that, He didn't seem to understand English

    we Paid for five beds, when we got there, there was only 4. The only reason this wasn’t an issue was bc one of our friends had gotten their flight cancelled. It was extremely unprofessional, the person at the front desk was unconcerned. Should’ve refunded us. bathrooms were not clean some of the toilets were clogged and when I told them about it, they said cleaning people didn’t come until morning. when I asked for more toilet paper, they told me they didn’t have access to it Would not recommend

    The location was perfect for where I wanted to go. I didn't like that my room was on the top floor so I had to lug my really heavy suitcase up and down the stairs. When I checked in a staff member did assist me though. The room only had two plugs and it was really hot at night. Also it seems a common thing in the hostels I stayed at except the one in Brussels that the bathrooms don't have outlets in the bathrooms. There was wifi but only in the lounge. The staff was ok but not very helpful.

    I had to ask 3 different staff just in order to print my boarding pass, nobody knew how to. I also came home 3 times to find the toilets covered in vomit or overflowing. Also the bathroom showers were not divided by gender, and you had to open the door to get the towel without knowing if anyone would be there. It was a great location though, but that's about it.
