Great!
Great hostel overall, only setback, the water pressure of the shower in the ensuite bathroom was a joke. Had to shower in the common bathroom despite having paid extra for the ensuite.

Top notch hostel experience
Ratings are this facility compared with what one expects in a bunk/dorm setting. Staff were superb, professional. Room/bunks were metal, clean, large locker - bring your own lock. Bathrooms were amazingly modern, rest of place was under remodeling. Shower water pressure was low but adequate. Breakfast room large, living room area smallish but many locations to gather including a central patio/courtyard. Free wi-fi throughout w/plenty of power outlets. Security top notch with pass cards to get in and out of living space and bunk rooms. Breakfast simple - great coffee, all you could eat. Co-visitors almost all international from all parts of the world. Filtered water bottle fillers in the hall. Overall a terrific hostel with everything I needed.
