The hostel was clean and modern, with nice places to sit, and a lovely outdoor area with a patio and chairs to sit in. We had a double room that was clean and bright, and the bathrooms were new and clean. There was no breakfast provided though. The staff were really helpful, and friendly too. The area wasn't the best - there were bars and restaurants on the main street, but it wasn't amazing.
