Very Good

I booked an all girls room and the bathrooms are mixed. This should be very clearly stated on the website. Very disappointed in this and did not feel safe in washroom.

I really liked this hostel. It was pretty clean and well maintained. The rooms were spacious and I found the kitchen to be quite organized. The staff was also very friendly.

Good location just a few minutes from the coach station and short walk from the city center. The rooms didn't have any lockers and the ones in common room aren't big enough to fit a backpack in them, so travelling with luggage can be a bit of a hassle. Large beer garden in the courtyard was nice, I think they close at midnight so the noise didn't bother me but that's something to keep in mind if you like to sleep early. Overall a nice hostel with good atmosphere ✌️
