    Great location, clean. The place was really compact, small common area. Small room, triple bunk beds. Like that the beds had curtains, but they were so squeaky that every time someone moved it was so loud. Did not sleep great any of the nights. And felt like I had to pay for everything...towel, luggage storage, lockers (hate when I can't use my own lock!). I don't think I would stay there again but it was an okay hostel. Clean, safe, good location, just didn't sleep great.
