Just ok.
The room was obviously being used as a storage room with clothes all over the room. It actually looked like inside of a bad thrift store. A female kept coming in and out of the room slamming the door all day, and night disrupting my sleep. The staff ok. The bathrooms were relatively clean.

Living in a hostel, sleeping on bunk beds, share your daily life with always incoming and outgoing people can be really hard, but SJB makes it as pleasurable as they can, they are there for you, you can count on them, and they will do their best to support you, nice lounge, warm welcoming, warm big dinner, and on a hard day, you can always chose watching Friends or How I met your mother on a big TV screen, instead of going out for a busy city tour, all staff members are a part of a good team, and I would recommend Will as a marketing face of the hostel, as he is a fantastic person.
