    I arrived late at night and had to wait a while to get in as the reception area is upstairs from the security door. I had traveled long and far and had no cash left and the staff at the desk had no problem allowing me to check in and pay in the morning which I felt was a huge help. Full kitchen provided which was clean and accommodating. The terrace is by the best part of the hostel. The view is amazing. It's comfy, warm and welcoming for all fellow hostelers. Room had no outlets though.
