Firstly, the staff are very helpful and welcoming.
The rooms are your typical shared dorm, shared bathroom. Fortunately there is a female only bathroom on the 3rd floor as my 12 bed dorm was filled with boys... So you can imagine the state of the bathroom and the lack of privacy! Unfortunately I was in room 2 which is located right next to the commual areas and was extremely noisy (no fault of the hostel of course!). The main downfall of my stay (as i can cope with the noise, lack of privacy) is that the atmosphere is a bit off, no real travellers staying here; mainly people looking for work and even some long term sleepers who actually live in the hostel. Therefore i didn't get to meet anyone to venture around the city with, which was disappointing (but again, not the fault of the hostel!) Overall, i cannot mark down the hostel for anything in particular, afterall you get what you expect from shared accomodation in a popular city; although i have to say, i would not stay here again.
Breakfast is self service and included in the price of the room; basic toast, cereal and coffee - but adequate.
