We booked a room online for 4 people, which on the booking form implies that you are booking 1 room with 4 beds. However when we reached the hostel the guy on the desk informed us that we had been split into 2 sets of 2 and had to share with randoms. Had we known that there was a chance of being split we wouldn't have bothered booking as we were travelling together so wanted to stay together.
Two of us (girls) went to our room to discover it stunk and there were boys clothes scattered all around the room. We really didn't want to sleep on bunks above them and in a separate room to our friends so got a refund and booked somewhere else for the night.
We had also booked another night there for a few days later and were put in a room together. The actual rooms are nice and clean, as are the bathrooms. Overall it seems like a nice hostel and isn't too noisy in the evenings so you are able to sleep well. However the mix up with rooms was very annoying and inconvenient so make sure you check if you'll be put in the same room as your friends before you go.
