The rooms are basic hostel rooms, maybe a bit smaller than usual but a relatively comfy bed with bedding. And they are very clean, as is the rest of the hostel. The showers get a bit wet/clogged up during the day but someone cleans them every day and they are nice and big with hot water and good pressure! The staff are friendly and laid back and the common room is lovely. If you've only stayed in European hostels before, this is a bit different. The walls are open onto the street for ventilation and the rooms may appear a bit rough around the edges (some peeling paint etc) but the main thing is that it's clean, central and good value for money. As a solo female traveller, I was hoping to meet more people but I think I came a a quieter period. A lot of people just stayed on their laptops and phones in the common room which was sad but a few friendly (also lone) travellers too!
