The common areas were great but some people didn't respect the 10 PM quiet hours and it didn't seem like they were enforced. Wasn't able to sleep very well (I was in the 8 female dorm) due to inconsiderate roommates and staff were noisy in the early hours of the morning. Sound carries very far in the hostel. Bathrooms were also not the best in terms of cleanliness but I did see that staff check in on them several times a day, so it was probably due to messy guests.
