3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Not so social for a solo traveller
The hostel's location is very good and generally, it is OK but there wasn't any social aspect for a solo traveller as people weren't even saying Hi to each other unless they were in a group. People leave their boots in the room making it smelly. The staff was very helpful and pleasant.
