This hostel is in a great location, free breakfast, free wifi, great dining room, computer area and tv room. My problems with this place are the lack of privacy in the showers (only a curtained off shower, nowhere dry to keep your stuff without getting dressed in front of everyone using the bathroom). The kitchen is far too small and badly designed, everyone is in everyone elses way, and it's a haven for thieves, I've never had so much food stolen in all my travels. The dorms are roomy and clean with a locker for your valuables. I would stay here again but I'd break the no food in your room rule and keep my food in my locker.
One last thing, if they are having school groups stay maybe the staff could check in on each level occasionally at night. With the chaperones nowhere to be found it would be nice to have someone "in charge" to make them keep the noise down.
