          Large hotel like atmosphere. good place to go with friends, not a great place to meet people. No quiet spaces. Cant make your own food or even bring hot food into the lobby while their food service is open. Breakfast isn't worth the price.More

          Yes -- Hostels are for any traveler! I don't see why it would be an issue. Just keep in mind that some hostels host events and have bar areas so during the weekends it could get loud but other than that it would be fine
