Very Good

The hostel is kept clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. But the desk is only manned for a few hours in the day. Overnight the hostel is incredibly noisy. Some of the people staying there have no respect for the other residents. I got very little sleep for the 4 nights I stayed there due to the noise. Also using the app on the phone as a key is a hassle if you lock yourself out in the middle of the night as you also don’t have your phone to ring them.

This hostel is only for people who relate to technology more than people. I was kept out for over 40 minutes because the verification code wouldn't come through for the app and by that time there were no staff available. There was no reception desk so emailing didn't get any answers and the phone number just dropped out. I only got in to the hostel I had already paid for thanks to the kindness of someone staying there. I like dealing with people so this was the wrong place for me.
