We stayed at this hostel for three night. At least when we were there, the atmosphere was quite quiet and relaxed. The hostel was comfortable and clean. Only downside is staff a little disinterested. Overall good, would stay again.

It's a lovely hostel with great areas for relaxing. Everything was very clean and the staff were helpful. Only complaint would be the shower was just a drizzle and was either boiling hot or freezing cold.
