Jail time.
Loved this place, we had our own cell with a bunk bed. The communal space was good, reception had lots of information to share. There were a couple of negative points as we felt the toilets and showers could have been better. A plug socket close to the bed would be useful as well.

Very Good 8.0
Really fun stay in a quirky hostel. Lots of room in the dorms. Very clean. Good facilities in the kitchen. Easy to get into town on the bus and from the train station.
