I don't think that I can give a good review as this is my 1st. time in a hostel. But overall I was ok with the hostel and my hostel view/perception was better than I expected!
I made it a point to get a room with two beds as the idea of being in a room with 12 strangers did not appeal to me. Overall, it was ok... we barely spent any time at the hostel as we were out and about so we really just used it to sleep and to store our things. Our room was all white with white duvets and had two lockers to store bags etc. We were given keys to the room so we felt safe keeping our things there.
The folks who worked there were super nice and helped us with dinner suggestions etc.
The bathrooms were better than what I imagnied.. all private showers with locks on the doors so totally ok.
Kitchen was a tad dirty based on my liking but agian doable and ok.
The Hostel Bar was fine... just a tad too dark and fraternity for my liking. Downtown had lots of nice bars!
Location was overall downtown but some of the other hostels I had considered were in the heart of the OLD TOWN Square. Not the end of the world I guess.
Hope this helps.
