Overall, I had a great stay at PCL. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. The commons can get busy and loud when the hostel is full and / or it’s raining, but the guests being welcoming, it can only be a great way to meet people and get to know them! The rooms are a bit small, the mattress of my bed was ok, but the « ceiling » of the bunk bed I was using was quite low so I couldn’t sit straight.

Nice clean room with under the bed storage for both top and bottom bunk which was nice. Could do with some more ventilation fans in the bathroom as the floor and walls get really wet when someone has a shower but didn’t affect me at all it’s just a bit of feedback. Really enjoyed my stay here and I would stay again definitely
