The place is nice and the staff are very friendly. In fact, I get to meet fellow travellers over there. The beds are very clean too. However, there is a problem with the shower, perhaps on the 1st floor. There was no way to change to cold shower, the shower was burning hot!

I really enjoyed my stay in the hostel. Clean room and bathrooms and comfortable bed. Although the staff was not always very welcoming (no "hello" or "goodbye" when you entered or left the hostel), they were very helpful. Basic but good breakfast. In the evening the music was quite loud.
