    Very Good

    We had a great stay here! Lovely people and helpful friendly staff. Loved the breakfast and terrace. There are way too many people staying here for only 2 bathrooms. Every morning I had to wait in line.... and once I got a turn the floor was wet and dirty. There was often no toilet paper. Also there was nowhere to put my stuff since I slept on the top bunk. Not a safe location. Anyway we enjoyed ourselves. Don't know why the terrace closes at 11, there should be an indoor common space.

    Dorm room was small and can get squeezy with everyone's luggage and backpacks on the floor. Only two bathrooms/toilets for entire hostel. Breakfast was basic. Overall an okay stay. They charge you if you need to keep your backpack after check out.

    Sunshine was overbooked and so I was moved to their second property (Sunrise) around the corner, which actually has a better location. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Can't comment on much as I was barely there - didn't see many people about though. Unfortunately the female dorm is right by the reception, so can hear the exterior door buzzer and the phone ringing through the night, when reception isn't staffed. Otherwise a good stay.
