4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The staff is good, very helpful. Bed is comfy. I think though I am not a hostel kind of person anymore. Used to be a go to when I was travelling but I will think again for next trips (the rest of my bookings are not in hostels). I know I should not expect to sleep well in a dormitory but still, being woken up at 1am to 2am is not very nice (mostly in jetlag). I could have chosen something better for jetlag but I was looking for a cheap accommodation for my first night. And it is no longer that of a cheap option! Thank you.
