Really nice place, but pretty quiet compared to other hostels.

Perfectly adequate hostel. Clean and rooms nicely sized for number of beds. Would happily stay there again. Issue with booking (caused by hostel staff rather than hostelworld) was sorted by staff at hostel although with difficulty due to poor training on booking computers. Front desk staff were very helpful but need to understand the difference between a hostel and a family ran small BnB - guided tours of the place are not required when first checking in.

Quick and easy check in. Room was very stuffy, even with the window open.
