If you watch the video featured on the HI website, they tell you about a safe place... Not in my room. I got a private room, but it has a communicating toilet with another room. The sliding door is held by a tiny latch that could easily be undone with a pen or if you pulled hard on the door. Private rooms don't have lockers, nor is there another designated area. However luggage can be left at the reception which is inconvenient. Second pictures on the HI website show a hip and clean place. In reality, the hostel is not very clean. I was told the men's shower was scummy. All shared spaces are loaded with finger prints. Loaded! The hostel also has an unpleasant smell. The U shape of the building makes many room over look a nice patio, but also makes it super noisy. Doors bang hard when they close. The front desk gives away free ear plugs. Breakfast is decent. Staff is the the friendliest, but they get things done.
