8/10 Very good

The staff was friendly and the room had the essentials. I do believe that the main problem was with my roommates but it was not a huge deal breaker. I would prefer a better way to get through the shower and bathroom

Happy holiday
We were very pleased with the stay our young ones had at the youth hostel. They stayed in a 2-bunk room with private bathroom. It had a small table with 2 stools, and separate shower and toilet rooms. The handbasin was in a separate space as well. They had a few problems with everything getting wet in the shower room but other than that everything was fine. They said that the breakfast was excellent with lots of healthy choices. They could walk to everything.
