    This hostel was nice for our weekend trip. Free breakfast (cereal) was definitely a plus. Hidden fees were frustrating: $5 deposit/pp for bedsheets/blankets and $2/pp for towel rental. Particularly because the hostel required cash, this was unexpected, and these extra costs would have been nice to know beforehand. If these and other fees were not listed on Hostel World, it is still the hostel's responsibility to make sure they are being advertised fairly. Otherwise, thank you for the stay.
