We stayed here because we saw it reviewed on the show "Getaway" and we also saw that it had a good recommendation in The Lonely Planet. I'm surprised it was so highly recommended, we loved the location, but the room we were in was TINY and not nice. There were 8 people packed into a really small room, so it was really hard to move around, and there was no space on the floor of the room or elsewhere to put bags so we kept our bags sitting on our bed most of the time. The dorm room had an ensuite bathroom which was really gross, I don't think it had been cleaned in weeks, and the toilet leaked so the floor was constantly flooded. Other than this the place wasn't too bad - breakfast was good - there were two cereal choices plus toast.
