I stayed here for two nights and overall had a good stay. I have not stayed in many hostels though I would consider this to be high end in terms of hostels. I stayed in a 4 bed hostel, rooms were clean, dark when curtains were drawn and well air conditioned. There is plenty of locker space in the rooms and reception has padlocks to buy for a small amount of money making it secure. Kitchen and dining room were roomy and the equipment is good. Breakfast price was reasonable though it is really just stuff you could buy from a supermarket for a lot less. Access to doors is all done electronically using a card, this can be a pain as you have to carry your card everywhere in addition to this my card did stop working several times during my stay. Linen was provided and you had to make your own bed, I believe this is fairly common for hostels though I did find this difficult as I arrived late and my roommates were already asleep when I got to the room meaning I had to make my bed in the dark! After the first night my linen and hired towel was taken so I had to get new ones. Room price was fairly standard, a few problems but nothing major, I enjoyed the stay and I would be comfortable staying in a YHA brand hostel again as I believe the facilities and service would be similar.
