We stayed in an 8 bed dorm, but we were the oly ones it there. The room was large with big solid beds, but it needed a bit of work doing. There was nothing wrong with the room and the bathroom was cleaned hard every day.
The kitchen was large and well stocked and the free WI-Fi is always a bonus. The whole hostel just needed a bit of an updating (which it said, it WAS getting). The staff were friendly and helpful.
