Under construction, so no community areas. But, it’s super clean and feels very private in the dorms.

Hostel is currently undergoing construction which they did not make clear at booking. They really should offer a discount- there's no lounge area at all. If you want to make a call overseas late at night, you have nowhere to go. They also had some of the construction workers in the bunks and they snored like a train. One of my roommates had to wake him up cause it was so bad.

Disappointing experience and not worth the money in its current guise. Property is a building site at the moment. Only available spaces are the kitchen and laundry. We cooked food and the only available space to eat at a table is outside surrounded by building works. The room we stayed in was very nice and had been completed to a high standard.
