Unfortunately we ended up staying here because tavern 47 was full. The common areas of the hostel are nice and staff helpful and friendly. On the downside, it's expensive for what you get. The dorms are very small, a double room cramped with three bunks and a locker. The toilets were cleaned once a day despite heavy usage meaning the bins were constantly overflowing and smelly. There is dusty carpet throughout the building as they don't use a vacuum cleaner. Also for 40¥ a night you would expect toilet paper in the communal toilets and clean sheets on a made bed (they didnt change the quilt covers when they swapped the sheets ). After seeing this, we were happy to go to another hostel and left wondering how many people had shared our quilt....
