I asked for a 4 bed room (primarily to reduce the risk of being stuck with an all night snorer). I was placed in a 4 bed room connected to a 5 bed room with an open doorway (with door) and to have my sleep interrupted by loud snoring coming from next door.

I was really impressed with this hostel! It was super clean, with friendly, helpful staff and great facilities. The cafe had an awesome selection and there were several places to enjoy your food or drinks, including a cute outdoor courtyard. The neighbourhood is safe, clean and central. The only downside for me, being there over a warm weekend and having a room right above the lobby, was the noise level from people hanging out on the street late into the night, plus the buses and traffic. Otherwise a fantastic stay and excellent value. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hostel to anyone.
