We stayed in a room with a private bathroom for one night. We had two twin beds but pushed them together and it was fine for a couple. The private bathroom was nice and the lobby area and shared kitchen were nice and clean. Plenty of fridge space. We realized the next morning that the parking our front is designated as 60 minutes max, fortunately we didn't get a ticket. Really our only complaint was the loud music from one of the clubs nearby. The hostel kindly supplies ear plugs in the room, sadly the music was more of a vibrate-your-entire-room variety so the ear plugs were of limited use. Overall, a nice place, just be prepared for some boom-tisk-boom-tisk in the middle of the night.
