It just wasn't for me...

The hostel is not terrible, it just wasn't as good as it could have been. The showers are quite small, I'm a petite girl around 160cm tall, 50kgs, and I was hitting my elbows on the taps and wall when just trying to wash my hair. The luggage compartments do not fit the typical suitcase of a traveller, in my room of 6 girls, none of our suitcases fit in the space, particularly as the door on it opens onto the floor blocking the entry to the space. Again, not a big deal as there is enough room within the room to store the cases - they're just not locked up. Minimal staff interaction, wasn't really informed of what they had on offer through the hostel. I was surprised on my first night to find that they had a night club within the hostel! It's clean enough for a hostel, the rooms are a good size (except for the shower and toilet), beds were comfortable and air conditioning was fantastic!
