    I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel, I was in a 4 bed dorm, but there was only me and 1 other person in there the whole time. The hostel was very clean throughout. Wifi was hit and miss. Constantly disconnected you! Free breakfast was a bonus, location was great. Really close to the train station.
