Stayed here for a week. Although it is a nice hostel with good facilities the long stayers really give this hostel a bad feel.
Right from the get go they make you feel unwelcome kind of like you are in their way!. Mostly the staff are great apart from the night staff as you get the feeling they are also long stayers so seems like they find it difficult to tell them to be quiet or clean up after themselves. Hostel is quite clean although they could Hoover under the beds once in a while.
All in all the facilities are ok and the hostel is nice well organised free breakfast a plus. It's good if you are happy keeping yourself to yourself as there is no interaction with others here. Oh and you don't mind being kept up with loud noise coming from the courtyard area even though the signs are plentiful telling you that you can't be in there after 10pm it seems the long stayers can do what they want when they want!.
