Great location and value for money
This hostel was better than I thought. I booked a private room with a private bathroom. The room was pleasantly clean but bathroom could've been cleaner than what it was. The space is enough and the checkin was easy with a big kitchen downstairs. Everything was great expect for the fact that the front desk staff was rude and not quite attentive.

Okay for a night
As a hostel it's fine. My husband and I had a private room with bathroom. It does have that institutional feel (the painted brick walls and floors) despite the fashionable colours and bedding. The photos show a coffee maker and a selection of Numi tea but what was provided was nasty coffee and a few generic black tea bags (which were all gone in the morning - maybe everyone else had had tea in the morning but why not leave more than a few bags out). Wifi was good and check in was easy. We didn't see anyone from the hostel except briefly in the morning.

While the rooms where quite basic , they did the job. The kitchen area was great, and here was also a nice sofa area where you could play games or watch tv

Staff was friendly and helpful. Shoes are to be taken off at the door but, they do have slippers to use during your stay. They have three kitchens, one main larger one and 2 smaller. I stayed in a room with 3 bunk beds. It was clean along with the rest of the hostel. There are plenty of showers and toilets. If this is your first stop check to see what food others have left before you go to one of the grocery stores in town, because, this seems to be many people's last stop. I would stay here again.
