    Overall I'd had a decent stay at the hostel and would recommend it to other travelers. Being more on the introverted side, I was still able to meet some people. This hostel is on the smaller side (not a bad thing), and sometimes the bathrooms can be quite busy. The reason is because sink, toilet, and shower are all in one room, as opposed to a community dormitory style setup, so just be aware of that. The mattresses weren't the most comfortable because I could occasionally feel the springs.
