    Not a huge fan of this hostel. The bathroom was falling apart (broken tiles, etc.) and the room I stayed in was pretty noisy (and dirty, although, this was more likely linked to other guests). Fair enough, the security lock at the entrance door is clearly a bonus, but I've got to admit that I'd prefer a 24-hour reception (especially when checking in early/late). The staff was nice, but pointed the bus stop in the wrong direction...
