The top bunk bed seems pretty dagerous cause they dont have fence or anything for safety. And there were only 2 toilets, one has seperate room but the other one was just curtained from shower booth. Except those 2, everything was good!

Great hostel. Extremely clean, good security on the main and bedroom doors. Very chill vibe. Small kitchen, but I didn't end up using it anyway. There was a book and clothing exchange. My favorite part was that the beds had solid wood walls, making them more like cubbies. It felt very private. The parking lot in the back was very convenient.
