Hi. Thanks for staying with us at The Hostel and for taking the time to leave a review. We are so glad you had such a great time and really appreciate your feedback. We are currently looking at redesigning some of our biggest dorms, including the one you stayed in, so that there is more floor space and areas for luggage.

You are welcome to stay with us anytime you like :)

Thanks

The Hostel
