Sad it was just 1 night stay
Had a great stay. Very clean hostel, great location, friendly staff. I liked the beds though the curtains are bit short and don't give privacy. There are 3 shared bathrooms which seem a bit limited for the whole hostel. The toilets are clean and spacious. The kitchen space is clean and has all that is needed, including free tea, coffee and cold watermt eh breakfast is decent but go early as it finishes quickly. I was sad to leave as hostel was fully booked and there was no room to extend

Very spacious rooms
A very nice hostel with spacious rooms and comfortable beds. Breakfast provided which is excellent. Good location. The only downside is the lack of bathrooms, only three which are often being used. Really need to provide separate toilets from showers.
