    If you want a party hostel it is a good place to stay otherwise I would go somewhere else. I stayed at the Sanctuary Dorm Ensuite for girls but it wasn't much of a sanctuary as there was neither coffee or tea as was promised and the beds were wobbly metal ones and not very nice to sleep in. Moreover, there where no lockers in the room or space designated for your luggage so it was a big mess and not clean. The good things about the hostel the helpful receptionists and BBQ.
