Interesting and enjoyable
Overall I enjoyed my stay. My bathroom could’ve been a little cleaner but the front desk was very nice and some of the people I met were incredible.

What a fabulous hostel!
Had a very pleasant stay. Staff was very friendly and the complimentary breakfast was a nice way to start the day. The locale was perfect for local errands. The ironing board and iron was very handy. My shared room had a nice balcony with nice views. Highly recommend to tourists!

Good 6.0
It's a "24 hour hostel", which, in practice, means new guests can enter your dorm any time. Two did, before midnight and before 1 am, waking me.

Good stay
It was good only negative thing I have to say was I didn't like that there were no outlets or lamps by your bed and only had 2 outlets in my room for 6 people also not sure if the bathrooms were cleaned at all during my stay my bed was also very noisy when I moved.Otherwise I loved the location and the house itself was great and had lots of space. Staff were kind and friendly.
