AMAZING all around but PARTICULARLY in the using resources and not wasting, making sure to be energy efficient and recycling and composting! By FAR one of my absolute favourites for this and for making the hostel the MOST like I run my own home.

Had a wonderful experience at the hostel - the staff were friendly and the security was... very secure. I had to go through three key-card access doors to get to my room, but in a good way because you know some random person from outside isn't going in and out of the building. The kitchen was clean and everyone was very respective and all the recycling bins can be a little confusing at the beginning but I know it's all for the best of the environment.
