" One of the best hostels I've stayed in so far. The location is perfect. It's incredibly tidy. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. The rooms are a great size and clean. The beds are pretty comfortable. The full and half baths are also clean. The common room and kitchen is homey and also clean. "
