All the staff were increadably helpful and kind. When I arrived (late mind you, as I got lost on the way and walked a mile in the wrong direction) the man at the front desk checked me in and gave me a small tour. He showed me the kitchen, the laundry, and then took me to my room. It was a mixed dorm but I was the only girl. I never felt unsafe though and made friends with a very kind Austrian fellow. After showing me my room and the rooftop I was left to get settled. I was booked for five nights, two of those in the mixed dorm, and the others in a female dorm. The staff was very kind about my room switching. On my last night I had to leave at 4 am but the front desk did not open until 6 am. I asked what do about checking out, as I would need to leave my key and bed sheets somewhere. She said to slip the key under the door to the front desk and to leave my sheets in front of the door. Very kind and helpful.
The hostel itself was clean and up to date. The staff cleaned every day and the rooms stayed pretty clean. The rooms are a bit small and the lockers are as well. But for me I was able to slip my suitcase under my bed, as was my bunk mate.
All in all, I found this to be a very nice hostel for a very reasonable price.
