    This was a nice hostel. Rooms were bit stuffy but clean and had lockers next to each bed as well as individual lamps, plugs, and a little shelf which was a nice touch. The location is great. Only drawback I found was that it wasn't the greatest for meeting people [I am travelling alone]. There is a cafe downstairs and a bar upstairs but no regular common area except the kitchen which is busy and somewhat crowded. The kitchen was also very difficult to find. Staff was nice and helpful.
