We stayed at this hostel for a night in one of the double rooms. The staff are really friendly, and switched us from a twin to a double room when we requested. The room itself is a bit of a weird setup which actually works quite well - all the twin and double rooms seem to be in separate little flats containing just two rooms, which means you're living quite closely to those in the other room, but you also get all the facilities between 4 people which is great. The room itself was really nice and felt quite homely, with a comfy bed. The price (for this type of room) was a little more expensive than you'd expect for a hostel, but essentially what you're getting is a very nice room in a flat, which was much better than we were expecting.
