    The place was great, super friendly staff. Only downside is the bathroom can get super slippery when it’s wet so be careful or else you can end up with some nasty bruises.

    The private room was really great and comfortable except for the noise. The roundabout right next to the hostel can get quite loud if you're in a room facing it. Bring earplugs and you should be good. Overall, very clean and decent location, especially if you're renting a car. Tip: There's ample free parking a few steps away from the hostel. Definitely a recommended place to stay.

    Good hostel, though not very social and right by the airport. I love that they provide towels without having to ask for them and the showers were nice and clean. The room got pretty hot, though, and the window opened up to the sidewalk with no screen or security bars so it's a bit sketchy to leave open (not to mention the planes landing about 200m away). Overall an enjoyable stay.
