This place ticked all the boxes (location, price, vibe) but it still just felt a bit off. It was great for what it was but it wasn't one of those hostels that you fall in love with and never want to leave. Two huge pluses here are that it was immaculately clean and the breakfast is quite nice. The ladies will cook you two eggs your way and serve them to you nice and hot. Rest of breakfast is passable bread, jam, margarine, bananas, juice and coffee. Given that its included in the price though, it's a real deal.
The rooftop terrace is really nice and great place to have a few drinks, enjoy their weekend BBQ or read a book during the peak of the day. This place does front a busy-ish street, so expect to hear cars, etc from any room on the front.
Staff were okay, with some better than others. Also weird is that the staff tend to dominate the one communal area for watching tv, making it a bit awkward to spend any time there. However, we met great people here so any shortfall with staff was up for by the rest. Again, I feel like I should be raving about this place but it just was missing something for me that I can't quite place. Definitely recommend though as its great value for the price.
