    Great hostel. Straight forward. Used their public kitchen facility to make our dinner. Shower flooded bathroom which was annoying. Overall great stay for a great price.

    It is okay the shower curtain not holding to the wall well. Don't like to slip and fall. I didn’t see a wiper to wipe the floor to the drain.

    The location is great, the hostel is clean and large. There are ample kitchen facilities, a small bar, and a good breakfast (not included). The room was on the small side but that did not matter for us.
