This was a nice big hostel. I was bummed that I had to stay in an auxiliary building, so I can't speak about the main building's rooms. THE BAD: The beds in my building were all metal, resulting in horrendous squeakiness. I ended sleeping the second night on the common room couch, which I'm pretty sure is not allowed, but it worked out for me. The room is also way hotter than it needs to be and not ventilated. THE GOOD: Otherwise, the staff, facilities, and amenities were great.

The front desk was pretty backed up sometimes. Otherwise, we loved our stay!
