    A good all round hostel with a lot going for it, with an amazing breakfast that makes it worth every penny. The only slight issues I had were checking in and the bar. Unfortunately you have to walk through the bar downstairs to check in which isn't great when you have all your luggage, and then trying to sleep above a crowded bar wasn't easy. Other than that though it was a nice place to stay.
