Poor 2.0
The mattress was so old, it has springs sticking out. It was the worst bed I ever slept on in my life. The people working there are so sweet and helpful, it was just the real old mattress that made my stay miserable.

Location is great, and it's a very well-kept hostel. The only negative I have is that it didn't really have as much of a communal, together feel like I have had at other hostels.
