This hostel is great, staff, location almost everything about it. I think the absence of women only space is problematic. I shared a dorm with 3 men, lovely respectful etc. It was for one night and that was absolutely manageable. The dorm is very small, so we were on top of each other, don't think I'd have been happy to spend any further nights in that space. Women, who for religious, cultural or other reasons do not wish to share with men would not be able to stay in this hostel.
