The ventilation in my room was very poor so it was very hot and stuffy in the room that night so I didn't sleep.

I think the hostel provides a great service at a good price in a very convenient location. The bathroom next to my room was quite dirty, with no bath mats available during my stay. The floor was also very dirty, this could be to me arriving later at night. The front desk staff at night were very pleasant. During the day, I couldn't say the head girl was the most pleasant or helpful but it was suitable enough. Overall if was perfect for what I needed and I would recommend.
