Liked: Close to the bus station, parking lot, nice bar

Disliked: After a huge group of school children checked in, toilets were nearly impossible to access. Because showers were in the same individually locking cubicles as the toilets, toilet facilities were inaccessible while all of these kids were showering. It made for an uncomfortable evening.

Liked: Really clean hostel with friendly atmosphere.

Disliked: Most staff friendly and helpful with the exception of a lady on reception on arrival. It would be nice to have a happy smiley welcome than someone who is disinterested and looks bored of being there.
