I came here without much expectations (after all, it was only $25/night). But to my surprise, it turned out to be a great stay. My traveling companions and I found the beds really comfortable and we slept very well during the 4 nights that we stayed. Blankets can be rented at 50 cents each. The toilets were extremely clean – dirty toilets are my biggest pet peeve when staying in hostels – so imagine how happy I was when I realised the toilets were nice and clean!
I also appreciate the fact that they had a huge kitchen available. Many people would cook their dinners there every night, and we never had to wait long to use the stoves. We also met a lovely elderly couple one night and had a great chat over dinner in the dining room.
Overall, it was one of the most pleasant hostel stays I've had. It's not a party hostel, so if you're looking for a young partying crowd, this isn't the place. I'd recommend this if you want a nice quiet environment to stay in.
