Great hostel, clean rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. Only suggestion is to go get breakfast somewhere else as it's not included in the price.

Nice modern hostel
Clean modern hostel. Our family of 4 fit in a 4-bunk room, and they provided an extra mattress (and sheets) that we could put on the floor so all 5 of us could be together. There were chargers for every bed. The only problem is that the sink is right in the main sleeping area, so if you needed to use the bathroom at night, your hand washing would be disruptive (okay for us as a family, but I imagine it wouldn't be ideal if you had just gotten one bed in a bunk with strangers).
