The hike up the hill was great for my cardio--and it offered a great view of the city. Hostel was clean and better than expected!

A nice location and a hostel-renovation with good integration of the original interiors. No elevator, 5 floors. Dorm rooms have single or few outlets. No light/power nodes on bunks. Some shower water heaters are ineffective. Local PC/terminals dont save locally, not even removable media. Printing out difficult or impossible. Use the provided map(s). Shop on Buyers Road blocks away, prepare food in self-catering kitchen. Beverages sold at front desk at reasonable prices.
