Clean & comfy BUT one bad incident ruined it.

Not a social hostel, don’t stay if you’re looking for a party or want to interact with people. It’s quite clean, but the bathroom could do with a floor cloth, it gets wet after people take a shower. Hair dryers are only located in the toilets on the 1st floor. I stayed in a 6 and 8-bed room (2 separate occasions within a week), beds were comfortable.
What ruined it for me was my last day - I asked to do laundry (wash and dry), and had to purchase tokens from the counter. I only found out after running the dryer for a 40-min cycle, that “it’s been having some problems”. The staff promised that he’d help me “check on it” while I went for my walking tour - I returned 3 hours later after the walking tour and lunch, and it was still wet. I tried putting it in for another cycle, and it still didn’t work. They refunded me my money and I had to walk for 15-mins in the rain with my laundry to a self-service laundromat to dry it, as I had to leave early the next morning - this whole exercise wasted 2 full hours of my day. Had they told me the dryer wasn’t working (which he clearly knew because he said it’s been “having some problems”), I wouldn’t have done my laundry that day.
