The staff clearly care about the people and are very friendly! The bathrooms are usually effective, although I often found that there was hair left all over the place, and that in the books and crannies the hostel is overdue for a deep clean. It's not luxury, but it is friendly. In the kitchen, it was usually clean after peak hours, but the pots and pans were pretty scummy. I was very disappointed one night because somebody ate the leftover pizza I left in the fridge!
