Quite nice. Very rude cleaners.

The hostel was quite nice. Clean and anything you want from a hostel. The rooms were very hot even with the windows open but we found that with most places we stayed. My one problem was the rudeness of the cleaning staff. They burst into the room on our first morning there asking who in this room was leaving that day. When we all replied that we were staying they scoffed and shut the door. At breakfast they were no nicer. They hurried us through and I watched one take a bowl from a girl who was clearly still eating, the girl took it back but it was just so rude. I understand that breakfast only runs until a certain time but there are nicer ways of getting people to hurry. Aside from that I liked that every bunk had its own curtains to block the light and that there was ear plugs available for free downstairs. All other staff were lovely.
