Trip Type:

Age Range:

Liked: Reception staff nice, good options for breakfast, bed comfortable, all linen provided, close to the airport.

Disliked: Showers didn't seem as private as other hostels I've been in. There is also nowhere to put valuables/make-up bag in the shower area - I would have liked to have put my bag on a shelf without it getting soaking wet.
