Staff is great, the place is spacious and clean. But super far from everything, with no transports around. If you don't have a car, you will need taxi/uber for everything. Also, breakfast is not free as it was in the description.

I stayed here in the winter (July) and it was FREEZING in the hostel. Much colder somehow than outside. Despite the hostel being completely full, and despite large heaters in the common areas, we were told there wasn't any money to buy gas for the heaters. Also, 40+ people were sharing an electrical strip in the common area. The staff was really nice and so helpful, but the location was best suited for guests with cars or those who didn't mind using uber for everything.

It's cold! No heating. Otherwise this is by far the nicest hostel I've stayed in, especially for the price. (I stayed in the dorm)

Fantastic place. The staff were helpful as this was a stressful time for me as I was relocating. Would pay the lovely staff a visit sometime soon.
