Good location, staff helpful (even gave us updates on when our tour was due to arrive in the morning!), and was quiet enough to get rest whilst not being completely dead. Spacious rooms and on the whole very clean. Only small issue is that our room wasn't ready until a couple of hours after the time that I had allocated as our expected arrival.
Big clean kitchen. Very clean bathroom and sleeping areas. Its very walkable to the major attractions. The breakfast was very basic with only one type of cereal and toast that had mould on it twice. Staff were very efficient to replace bread once notified though. No wifi in the building but free at the party hostel next door. A very clean quite hostel but always welcome to party next door too.
This place was great! Exactly what I hoped for- quiet, friendly, clean. They don't get 100% from me because: there is a broken lock on the front door that doesn't lock. They have a sign up saying "make sure you push the door closed", but of course no one does. They should just fix it! it's very unsafe. Otherwise it was perfect.
