    Not too bad, beds had curtains which is great. Pretty clean (though the shower needs some work). If they had less thick duvets for summer that would also be ideal.

    Decent hostel, but the key cards wouldn't open the doors from time to time, and the ensuite bathroom showers aren't separate from the toilet, so everything gets wet and the floor wasn't angled to drain.

    The state of the 12 bedroom mixed dorm was shocking. It was not cleaned once during the stay, with empty whiskey bottles left in the shower and the floors were disgusting.
