    Room was slightly musky, no power socket near bed, only on the other side. extension cable provided but wasn’t long enough to make it half way. Toilet cleanliness average.

    Recommend to stay here

    Hostel was really nice, good kitchen area with everything you need and lounge area was nice to relax in. They also have table tennis and you can watch people on the rock climbing wall. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm with 2 single beds and a bunk bed. Super comfortable bed with a heater in the room which is great for this time of year. Only downfall was that there isn’t WiFi in the rooms and you have to sit in the communal area to use it. Great location though. Would return!
