5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great hostel!
Great hostel in a perfect location. Staff are friendly and helpful. I stayed in the 6-bed female dorm (room 211). Bed was comfortable, the room was big and there was plenty of space to store all of my belongings. The only downside that I could find was that there wasn't powerpoints beside each of the beds so made it difficult to charge my electronics. There's also plenty of free street parking in front of the hostel.

Great value hostel
It was good stay and our double room was better than expected with fridge, coffee, milk, tea and big size room. The downside of the property are the paper wall it has where you can hear everything. Very close to restaurants, marina etc
