+ the people who rent this business + the position, because it wasn't so far away from the centre + to be able to cook your own meals + having a living room, where you could talk with other persons.
the closeness to the City Centre the lovely warm fire great people running the place lovely people staying at the time
Leaving the place
Decorations are special
Too much limitations
Room was nice and comfy
Bathrooms and Toilets were disgusting and haven't been cleaned in ages, Livingroom was full with clothes and paperwork couldn't sit on the couch.
The homey atmosphere
Sparkys hostel is really familiary and pretty nice hostel and the special highlight is a hot pool with jelly beans and a helmed :-P insider @ sparky its was very awesome
Staff, very friendly
That I had to leave ;)
exactly what i needed so it was all g
nothing really a lot of rules to read and i couldn't be bothered so dont know if i violated them or not
The spa pool to unwind and soak out the tight muscles from driving, and the spacious bedroom.
It's a house adapt as dorm, the guy who runs it actually lives there too. It was a little weird for my point of view
Better than sleeping in the rain.
Toilet etc. in need of upgrading, there was no heating (in March), house was messy.
Nice (family) staff, comfortable bed, wifi access
Terrible location, would've been same cost to stay much more central, outdated bathroom/shower
The owner: he was very special! The decorations: you don't know where to look first The decorated rooms: one word: WAW
Rooms had no lockers??
since the hostel is quit small it's easy to interact with other guests.
the kitchen is quit small and there is only one table with 4 seats to eat. so the chance to sit down to eat something is quit low ;) beside this the owner is always around giving u the feeling u are in the way or did something wrong...using his facilities in an appropriate way. there are a lot of rules u will feel like your mother is there as well ;) don't tough the TV, meaning don't change the channel, becuase the owner wants to watch CSI...and don't use the wifi more than 20min...he is checking that! it's nice that they have a pool, but the area where the pool is located (outside in the "garden") looks like a place to store trash. i didn't use it, so maybe when it's dark outside it's fine than u don't see the mess ;) the owner seems to be all the time stressed, but i guess he is doing his best.it would be better if he has is own kitchen, bathroom and TV instead of giving the guests the feeling to be in his way. all together i would still go there again, it's so strange thats funny again.
The common room seems to be the owner's living room, free internet's only for 20 minutes and the kitchen's tiny.
A place with a character. It's a house where some rooms are prepared for travellers. Kitchen is well equiped, location is OK, Sparky is a friendly mate.
House rules might be a bit annoying. Shower only 5min, internet only 20min, etc.
Friendly. Good recycling set up. close to bus stop. Homely. No alcohol abuse.
