This is a great hostel to make friends and meet people. Lots of common spaces to hang out in. Great location, big kitchen, nice bathroom and very clean all around. The only issues I had was how cold it was in the hostel constantly and there aren’t outlets at each bed, you have to share an extension cord. Just an FYI, would still go back.
