The staff here were really nice and good, although they did put on some fairly weird entertainment. Hostel itself was alright; fairly basic common area which didn't really have enough space for everyone. That being said, there was a communal guitar and piano and a pool table. Despite this, the hostel wasn't brilliant socially and the common area was mostly people on their laptops (maybe because they couldn't access them in their rooms).
The lift going up to the rooms was horrendously slow, and there was no wireless access on the top floor where we were staying. The rooms themselves were pretty standard, but certainly nothing wrong with them. There were plenty of bathrooms and the free breakfast was great.
Location wise it was decent, not too far from most of the attractions and in a safe neighbourhood. Overall, a decent hostel, but nothing spectacular.
