The hostel was pleasant. We had a nice double room but it was noisy onlooking onto the balcony where other guests congregated in later hours. It was disappointing that the hostel did not provide bikes as they were needing repaired - despite saying they'd be looked at. Procrastination. I felt that one particular employee was rude and too engrossed in playing video games. Another employee was very helpful. Kitchen was clean but our ensuite shower was not pleasant as water did not drain away.
