    Hostel is mostly average, but has some serious noise problems. Booked a bed in a 6 person dorm, but the walls of the room do not reach the ceiling so noise from other dorms as well as the reception/common area comes straight in at all hours, not to mention noise from the street, ultimately you should use earplugs if you want to rest well. With regards to the shower, true you do have to pull a rope for the water to come on, but I was not bothered much since hot water was quick and plentiful.
