I have stayed in many hostels and would not recommend this one. It is an old building with single pane windows, which was very cold in the winter. There was a heater in my room, but I had no control on the heat, so ended up sleeping in my clothes to keep warm. I could not ask a staff member for help as no one is working during the night, so you are on your own. The facilities are old and not worth the money you pay.
