Overall it was a good stay, the hostel was spotlessly clean and the room was great. I do have a couple of cons though. One of the staff members wasn’t friendly at all (female), couldn’t crack a smile, you could tell she didn’t even want to interact with you which is quite a shame because the guy was lovely! Also breakfast.. I can see why it’s free.. it’s continental and you can tell it’s not fresh. Come on guys don’t put so much out so it doesn’t go off! And when it’s time to bin it just bin it!

My wife and I had a nice stay. It was close to the airport which was handy for our departing flight. Private room was spacious but we would have liked a double bed instead of two singles. Also the walls are a bit thin so we could hear the neighboring guests being loud way past midnight which made it hard to sleep. The breakfast was adequate.
