I have never written a review before but I was so surprised by this hostel that I decided to write one. I did not like this hostel at all and yet it has such good reviews...? All of the staff were nice but most were 'relaxed' to the point of being apathetic and unhelpful. The bathroom was not clean plus they openly admitted to not always changing sheets between guests which I think is inexcusable. The place, though nicely decorated, has a very cold feeling. Not a hang out, homely feel that most good hostels manage to achieve. I would not recommend this place to friends.
