    Very modern, keycards for rooms etc, good showers, large common area. Impersonal due to its size, but other than that it can't be faulted. The location is perfect.

    Nice hostel, very central and recently decorated. Each bunk had its own plug socket, a light for reading and a privacy screen beside the head of the bed. Negatives - there was black mould on the bathroom ceiling and noise in the corridor could be easily heard in the bedroom.
