It was good overall, it was a holiday weekend, so it was pretty busy. There were not enough towels so I did not get one when I checked-in. My bed was not clean and ready either. Other than that, I suggest explaining at check-in how the kitchen works and what is possible or not. Not assume that everyone has had a hostelling experience.

The fridge and freezer were filthy and full to over flowing. There was obviously abandoned food stuffs in the kitchen. The individual The wrapped food for breakfast was not environmentally green. Victoria at the front desk was great. Having to run the gauntlet of smokers and pile of dead leaves to get to the front door was unwelcoming.

the beds are terribly uncomfortable. there seems to be no padding whatsoever in the mattress and i felt like i was sleeping on the floor. the womens' bathroom on the 2nd floor needed to be updated badly. the shower stalls are so small with no shelves to store shampoo soap and their is only one handle with no way to control water temperature. i wouldn't stay here again until i've heard its been updated
