    We stayed in the 10 bed dorm which was warm quiet and clean but a separate building from the rest if the hostel. We had our own bathroom but just 1 for 10 people so most used the main building. Overall would recommend, had a nice atmosphere. No lockers for your belongings in dorm.

    It was my second time staying here so it was nice to come to a familiar place! The host scolded me for booking through the website though. I hadn't realized. Book through other website -- same price but the hostel gets the booking fee, not this website! :)
