The hostel itself was beautiful and close to the train station and the staff was great but it could use some improvements; we had a private room on the 3rd floor (no elevator) which had no room in it at all since there was a platform bed with 7 mattress across the whole back wall which only left a 3 ft wide space for us to keep our stuff and get dressed (not the mention the sink which i think would have splashed onto the bed if we used it. There was a skylight in the room but no windows. The bath rooms were very clean, but the blankets provided were full of hair and the pillows were tiny. You also have to rent a sleep sack to sleep in. The other issue was the lighting; out room was so dark we could barely see and the hall light was on a timer and would would not come on sometimes. I did pass another room on the bottom floor and it did look much nicer, but the room we had was not the best.
