Got a room for a reasonable price on short notice (on the day). Very average and basic all round. Had to make the bed etc yourself with sheets provided. Beds were not very comfortable. Breakfast was very basic also (bread, preserves, tea and coffee). Had the feeling of a block of flats. Also the hostel was not just for youths, I encountered an older man in fhe hallway that seemed rather shady (seemed drunk). Also the breakfast room was full of peopoe banging tables and being loud til around 3am which may be a problem if you are a light sleeper or need a good nights sleep.
