I liked that I had a whole room to myself! Definitely a plus compared to other youth hostels with dormitories. I also liked the access to a washing machine + dryer. Nothing I can think of to improve on beside maybe a little bit more pots and pans in the kitchen.

Very friendly and helpful front desk staff. Excellent facilities. Cleanliness was good, but a few small details could have made it very good. Possible due to other visitors? Shampoo left in shower, for example. Not at all sure about environmental practices...
