I stayed here for two nights and had chosen it based on good location, friend's recommendation and a desire not to be in the middle of backpacker central. As my first solo introduction to a hostel it was very good.
The hostel was lovely, clean and with very friendly and helpful staff. I was in the six-bed female dorm which had good beds, towels and a power outlet, shelf and light per bunk.
There was only one other in my dorm and indeed there were not many people staying here at all. If you are looking for somewhere pleasant, clean and with friendly staff but not necessarily wanting to meet a tonne of people then this is a great place to stay.
