Friendly and warm, but not quite up to scratch
Friendly staff. Flexible with check-ins which was helpful. The hostel and showers were was warm, despite weather outside being miserable and 2 degrees all weekend. Not a bad price, but not great considering the 25+ min walk from city centre, and quite low quality service. Cleanliness in room and showers wasn't great. Toilets not stocked with toilet paper, and kitchen quite limited on supplies and plates/cutlery. The "continental breakfast" is actually just stale cereals, and very limited amount of bread and milk. Quite noisy, even by hostel standards. The walk from the city centre to the hostel is fairly easy in about 30 mins, but goes through some parts of the city with limited street lights and no little passing traffic at night, so not sure I'd be comfortable doing it alone.
