Staff were super friendly and welcoming and took time to show me around the hostel. Room was small but was fine for the stay - a metal basket under the beds for bags etc. Room got quite cold at night with no heater. Nice to have proper bath mats in showers but bathroom could have been cleaner. Nice big kitchen. One slight negative - it felt like the long-term guests took over the kitchen area in the evening and myself and another girl didn’t feel comfortable sitting downstairs with them.
