3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Liked: Staff & service
The staff were lovely, room was decent and the resident animals were adorable. Bathrooms were very clean but kitchen was filthy, and we had an extremely loud family who seemed to think it was OK to take over the entire bathroom for most of our stay and their screaming children could be heard at the other end of the hostel with nothing done about it. Otherwise it was a quiet and pleasant place however I didn't appreciate the fact that I was charged double upon check in (when I booked, and again when I checked in) so even though I told them I had paid on booking they denied it, and I had to check my records and have it corrected.
