Very centred and well located, the hostel is quite small which is plus for me. Showers and toilets are either only girls and mixed. The hostel has lockers which is perfect when you stay longer than a night. The staff was really nice and easy going, helpful in many ways! Even if well located, some of the rooms are above pubs and the floor lets the noise coming up. It didn't affect me but a light sleeper can find it hard..
