    It has everything a hostel should have, but its nothing spectacular. Although you don't expect much from a free breakfast, there are numerous signs reminding guests that they are each allocated 2X pieces of toast, 1X bowl of cereal and 1X hot beverage. It's just bread and cornflakes, calm down management.
