Lock on window (with balcony outside) was broken. Light by bunk not working. This hostel was from the 70s when you expected hard bunks, no security and tiny room. This is not the usual standard of modern hostels. On arrival were told our double room had two bunks, didn't sleep for fear of falling off top bunk, NO SAFETY RAIL! As we were two late 60yr old women (one a Life Member), would have been a nice gesture on the staff to put us in the empty 3bunkroom opposite., which had two bottom bunks.


A bit dated and didn't seem to be many people around, but overall it had friendly & helpful staff, comfy beds, clean bathrooms and felt secure. All you need at the end of the day.
