Friendly staff, clean hostel. It's really let down by it's lack of plug sockets next to each individual bed. I have found it pretty standard in other hostels to have usb sockets built into bedside light. Only 2 plugs in room + one for shaver next to sink) meaning you have to wait to use socket or go elsewhere in hostel. It would be nice to have individual privacy curtains around beds. The bunk bed ladders are very narrow, you may struggle with these if you have balance/mobility issues.

The staff were very friendly and the hostel was very clean. However it was not a social place. There were no assigned beds, so there were some mix ups, as well as a lack of charging outlets (2 for 6 people) and lockers (4 for 6 people). The showers didn’t have any place inside to put your stuff, just a hook on the outside, so you had to hope that no one would walk in on you. The kitchen/dining area was huge so meal prep was easy. I’m glad I went with someone, otherwise it would’ve been lonely.

Even tho I was a day late for my booking, the hostel just shifted the booking.. what other accommodation would do that. Place feels like a hotel- reception certainly. But the kitchen looked business like for self catering, although I chose the light breakfast in the canteen..
