    I thought this hostel was very hard to find. I don't believe the directions they list are very helpful. Other than that, really good hostel. Very good breakfast, which was free. Lots of facilities such as kitchen, tv, lockers etc Would visit again...now that I know where it PLEASE bear in mind the reception closes at 10pm. No admittance after that time
