Hotel staff was friendly, good location, great kitchen to cook meals and areas to hang out with friends. the GREATEST downsize is: the hostel has a bar, and the music is SO LOUD during friday and saturday it's impossible to sleep. they offer some ear plugs for free but they don't do much. also, before me and my group of friends arrived, we saw a message on the hostelworld group saying one guest had BED BUGS all over them in their room, we were really scared but then nothing happened to us
