It was lovely all over. The bed was a little uncomfortable but no biggie though.

Stayed for one night but wish i could stay early. The young lady at reception was very friendly and attentive, she explained all the facilities on check-in and booked a taxi for me to go to the airport at 4am. She gave a great impression of the hostel and you could tell that she enjoyed her job.
