This is a really nice and clean hostel. 30 mins walking from town but near bus/tram stops.

Decent enough spot to rest your head for one night; clean bedding, well stocked toilets. The downside - Certain of the staff could've been friendlier. I was prompted to wash one cup and one glass while I was still using 2 glasses (there were 4 of us) - made sense to me to do dishes at the end. Being interrupted ike that doesn't make someone feel welcome, I had every intention of tidying up after our group. Even if I didn't know, how can one miss the multiple signs...bit offputting.

Stayed in room 7 (private room ). While the room itself was lovely the mattress was awful and required replacing as you will hear and feel the springs when moving
