Good rate. Hot showers. Beautiful hostel. The majority of staff were helpful and patient. Diane (reception) and the hostel manager provided me with the most lively and positive interactions. My overall "poor" rating was a result of sharing a dorm with a woman who would not stop talking/insulting those around her; and, some of my clothes were, according to the housekeeper, "thrown away."
