The staff were really great, happy to share experiences, tips, etc. the hostel is very well located-rarely more than 15-20min walk from most place, if that! But the hostel was cold-the shower had a set temperature that was warm at best and with no pressure. Plus the bathroom window was open meaning it felt colder and always had a breeze (not good in the winter). One nit the lock broke,and although we were secure inside it meant going out later was a problem as we didn't have keys.
The staff really make this place great. They will give tips, advice and even come out drinking with you after a few at the (on site) bar- we ended up singing karaoke with the staff at 2am!? The showers are the best (very hot, very powerful) I've had in a hostel. The laundry did take quite a while to complete, and I had to follow up and ask for it often, but this was due to a problem with the water heaters so I can understand the delay. Thanks for the stay last week, V. Good indeed. Michael
