The hostel is clearly a boarding school or something similar which is converted into a hostel for the summer months. The temporary sign outside and the huge Christian mural on the wall of the reception/common area were the first giveaways. The staff were fairly polite without being overly friendly.
We booked a twin room, hoping to push the beds together, but they were each attached to the walls and their own study desk (like being back at school) but can't complain about this as we booked a twin. The hostel was quiet at night which was great and meant you could get a good sleep.
As others have written the wi-fi which was very poor, even in the reception area which was very frustrating. It was a 20 min walk to the city centre, but this was fine for us and was a fairly nice walk. Another issue we had was no security pass or anything that had to be shown to get your key which didn't make it seem too secure. Keys were given out to whoever asked for them.
Overall not the best hostel but definitely not the worst either. For the prices charged however, there's that needs to be improved.
