My partner and I stayed here in June this year and made our booking online from Australia based on the pictures and previous reviews. We were backpacking through Europe on a budget and this place was really great to us! The older staff were very helpful, though the young staff were slightly less attentive (as can be expected) but still useful.
The rooms are simple and clean with cupboard space, a desk and bedding. We asked for a double room (with doble bed) and got two singles pushed together haha but we made do. The bathroom was acceptable and just looked like your average shower at home, no serious mold that I could see. We also had a nice window sill with a nice view which made it backpacker romantic.
The buffet breakfast was GREAT with breads, yogurt, eggs, fruit, cereals, etc and the eating hall is beautiful with a gorgoues garden outside. Other things include: ping pong table, cute little bar and courtyard, computers with internet, free wifi in the lobby, little library and laundry (great for backpackers). The hostel also had lots of maps and brochures about the area.
We had no problems staying here and think it is great if a hostel is all you need on your travels!
