Great experience here as a young female solo traveller. Got super lucky with my room mates, but also met really cool people in the kitchen area so its a very social vibe. Bit of a dodgy area but close to the city centre and the bus/ train station. The breakfast was probably the best hostel breakfast I have ever had and I have many experiences of hostel breakfast so highly recommend picking the breakfast option.
