Free deposit box! nice!

Room-Nice! Like our room back home. No TV thou but has a TV room downstairs. Nice closet and nice view from the Window. Its like your just in your neighborhood... but it is.
Facility-No private Bathrooms: upstairs there are 2 shower rooms and 1 toilet. Good thing we didnt have long qeues in using them. Toilet with paper towels and 1 shower room with shampoos...
Kitchen were small nice and 2 of them.
Hot drinks were there and just make it yourself and the bread they were raving about is a simple homemade brown or wheat bread. its nice just cut for yourself and put butter or jam and thats the bfast! a separate bread is there to those who wants to eat at anyday.
Staff: friendly i say.. they know the place and you could ask them for some directions. Im not sure if they have booking facilities for tours also.
Location: Its quite far from the city. Have to walk around 40 mins to reach the cathedral.
Free shuttle! thats great free pick up and drop from the airport! just inform them ahead of time. Nice hostel but a little bit noisy during the wee hours as guests comes to the common room and chat all night long.. and you can hear them from the 2nd floor... thats the downside....
