Okay for a night
As a hostel it's fine. My husband and I had a private room with bathroom. It does have that institutional feel (the painted brick walls and floors) despite the fashionable colours and bedding. The photos show a coffee maker and a selection of Numi tea but what was provided was nasty coffee and a few generic black tea bags (which were all gone in the morning - maybe everyone else had had tea in the morning but why not leave more than a few bags out). Wifi was good and check in was easy. We didn't see anyone from the hostel except briefly in the morning.

While the rooms where quite basic , they did the job. The kitchen area was great, and here was also a nice sofa area where you could play games or watch tv

Staff was friendly and helpful. Shoes are to be taken off at the door but, they do have slippers to use during your stay. They have three kitchens, one main larger one and 2 smaller. I stayed in a room with 3 bunk beds. It was clean along with the rest of the hostel. There are plenty of showers and toilets. If this is your first stop check to see what food others have left before you go to one of the grocery stores in town, because, this seems to be many people's last stop. I would stay here again.

Average experience.
It was ok. Rooms were average and rather loud. Bathrooms were not clean for the men's side but OK for the women. Long stairs to go up the floor. My key got stuck in the door and it took ten minutes of wiggling to get it loose. Very loud with the rooms at night and people going in and out. Kitchen was amazing and so was the seating. Bathrooms and showers need to be updated. Ran out of paper in one bathroom.

Late checkin was possible as they left a key at the reception. Good Wifi and location close to local attractions. Breakfast buffet available for purchase but we didn't opt for that. Seems like a huge Hostel as there was busting activity in the shared kitchen even when we arrived at 11pm. It's a hostel - you get what you paid for which is a bed and a good night's sleep. Great food in the area.

Pleasant and comfortable
Everyone was friendly and helpful. The town is really quite beautiful. We shopped at the bonus down the street and used the kitchen to eat in.
