It was great overall especially the location. The staff was helpful and nice. One thing for improvement was that the washroom and the bathroom were not separated and there might be a queue for taking shower while the room was occupied.

We checked in late and keys w instructions were waiting for us. Our room was adequate, could have had a screen on the window as it was stuffy at night. I was amazed how so many people could share 2 bathrooms. The hostel is in two buildings and it would have been nice to know that the other building had a common area, only found out the last day. Also, I realize that staff are often very busy, but my one suggestion for improvement was met with resistance. Just wanted a sign in the kitchen.
