8/10 Very good

A nice hostel.
I only stayed one night, but great service and a nice, quiet stay. It is a hostel, but there was only one other person in my room, and he was on the far side of the room. My only complaint was that the pillow was pretty uncomfortable; if you fold it in half, you almost have a full pillow. I'd stay again.
