Liked: Very nice staff and great location

Disliked: The hostel could have been cleaner. All of it. It looked like a deep clean had not happened in a while. 3 out of 4 bathrooms were clogged and did not flush properly. The breakfast was quite basic, which is fine, but was scattered all over, some things were thrown carelessly onto a table while others you had to look for somewhere else. There were no napkins either. The bedsheets and pillows were old. I would recommend this hostel only after mentioning all of the above.

Liked: Simple, Perfect for one night. Very good value for money.
