8/10 Very good

Nice but noisey
High quality for a backpackers place and the building room had a lot of character. Staff friendly and helpful Fab location Noisy though, as I guess you would expect in a hostel type of accommodation. I wouldn’t stay again due to this but would be ok if you are heavy sleeper

I didn’t realize this was a hostel until after I booked it. It’s not terrible. A communal bathroom and shower is pretty clean. Steep stairs to get up into it.
