Very comfy beds. Nice curtains to make it dark and individual plugs. Breakfast is misleading if you just want sweet bread you can toast you’ll be fine.

Fantastic hostel - well worth the money
Amazing hostel. Incredibly welcoming staff, always eager to help. Yayan keeps the place super clean! And Leo, Leelian, Mimi and Gino try very hard to make you feel at home. Beds are comfy with a curtain, shelf, plug socket and light. Lockers, towels and toiletries provided as well as laundry soap, a very basic breakfast and filtered water. They also encourage bottle and plastic recycling. My only concern is everyone will realise how good they are and I won't get a bed any more 😂 Truly a fantastic hostel.
