It was crowed in the kitchen (very small). There are terraces that were convenient and comfortable for smoking or chilling out with friends. Not many people interacted with each other so might seem a bit lonely. It's not really far from the city's center and you can walk to anyplace in 10-20 minutes.
I stayed in private room so I can't say much to others but it was clean and the staff was very nice. Breakfast was great, couldn't complain about anything. Might be hard to find it but i asked for directions at a near hotel and the people who live in the same building of the hostel would help you find the place even without asking anything.
Loved it. Especially the Staff. They are so kind that I regretted leaving the place so fast. It's not a great location though it's near the main station but you can get to everywhere without much difficulty. Rooms are cleaned very well and it's not that hot even without any fans and AC. WIFI won't reach the rooms but it's fast in front of the reception. Small place but really great to stay.
I stayed in a 12 people dorm but it didn't seem so crowded. Showers were great and there's a huge lounge so always have seats. But the kitchen will seem very small compared to the number of people who stay there. You've got to wait a lot to cook something during 8-9 pm. You can't smoke in front of the hostel so that really sucked. Not great to meet and get to know people. It's like a really really cheap hotel. Plus i was only a bit late and I lost 10 pounds deposit. boo.
Had a great time at the hostel. The janitor may not be very kind to people who don't appreciate the hostel's facility but he's just doing his job and he kept the place clean. Showers were great though there weren't many. Kitchen is small but there's everything you need. People I met there were awesome and it's near the park so it's great for a morning walk. I had a hard time finding the hostel but people on the streets will probably help you.
Hostel was clean and tidy except the kitchen/lounge which wasn't really the hostel's fault but the people who stayed there. (Most of them didn't clean their dishes and other things they used but that's the same for all the other hostels so I can't complain) Security was great. Security locks were at the main door and at the entry of the first floor to the dorms. Staffs would answer questions and request if they could be I wouldn't say they were very kind.
