Huge hostel
It's a big hostel. The room was nice but lack of storage space. The kitchen and lounge were spacious but pretty crowed all the time. If you prefer quiet place, probably here is not for you. But overall here is nice and reasonable price.

Wonderful location! Fun and quirky. My only issue was the showers. They need better drainage and/or a place to put clothes - especially if the shower rooms are mixed sex

Great for location
I booked a private room. It was very small and bed was hard pillows too. It was noisy but doable. The shared bathroom is coed with two showers and three sinks. No amenities and for the price I paid I would not recommend.
