The location of this hostel is really good, hidden in one of the little lanes yet close to the main tourist area. The rooftop bar offers an amazing view of the river and town - a photographers paradise at sunset. The room we stayed in was OK - the bed had clean linen and something I've now fallen in love with - an electric blanket! This is first place I've stayed that has had one - I think all hostels should get them (take note other hostels!!) The AC was also a great heater too - all in all I was sooooo warm in this hostel which was much needed as you can get pretty chilly walking around a town where no-one has heating and the doors are always wide open. The downside of this hostel, and the reason I didn't score it as excellent, was the bathroom. It was a bit dirty. The door had obvious grime on it and the shower curtain was mouldy. It was a cheap stay so I guess you get what you pay for but another thing that I didn't like, a pet hate of mine is, the toilet seat was too small for the pan. I've been using a squat toilet for the last 5 months so was really looking forward to using a western one. Oh well! Despite this the staff on reception were brilliant - they spoke really good English and were friendly and helpful. However, in my opinion, the bar staff need to get a taste in good music ;)
