Lovely hostel.Nice keycard entry, spacious common space, clean kitchens.Staff were working their tails off trying to get rooms ready for check in and showers cleaned etc, good but Need more maybe. solid walk from town but bus close. Disappointed that early checkin not available. you arrive at 0400 and can not get in until 1400 if lucky-a drag, ditch the table tennis in the basement and throw some futons there for people to crash out and wait. Need in room lockers, but overall great place
