I must first say, the staff (Adam at front desk, NY gal who runs breakfast, evening reception girl & maintenance guy) were a few that we interacted with, were very accommodating. We had a slight issue with our sleeping arrangements bc of tour company and Adam resolved it quickly! Wonderful location to downtown and proximity to the reception/breakfast building is important too because of traffic noise and unpredictable rain (when moving luggage). The breakfast was awesome!!! However, that's where the positive feedback ends. The two rooms we stayed in were very small for a family of 4, though the rooms were clean, they lacked any air circulation so it was very stale in the room which made it warm and uncomfortable overnight. The bathrooms were gross! The water didn't drain, the one shower had disgusting mold/mildew on shower fixture and tile needed to be scrubbed. The walls are paper thin and people come and go all hours of the night. Not really conducive to good nights sleep with young children. They put us in a building on the main floor knowing that they'd have 2 and 3am check in's (the front clerk told me the following day when I mentioned the excessive noise). Those 3 nights (2 different bldgs & rooms) were the worst quality of sleep during our entire 12 day trip. I totally understand this is a budget hostel, but there's no cost to clean a bathroom or thoughtful book guests based on their needs (quiet vs single party goers)
