    A pleasant looking hostel, but one with little atmosphere, no lockers in the dorms, no internet, and a staff that is not always attentive. Like other reviewers I too was stranded outside the gate at one point, with no one coming until someone who dropped me off called them (which was a bit embarrassing). The guy working nights did not seem to care too much about things. Fixing these things would make this a great hostel.
