It was great for the type of hostel it is. We had a double bed with a bunk above us and the bathroom down the hall. All was clean and staff very nice. We may have gotten the last room for miles so we were very grateful. It was a bit pricey for a hostel but that may be because it was peak time.
Much bigger in side, but small bed room, but clean. Use of Kitchen, fridge, microwave etc. Toilets and showers along the corridor. Large sitting and games room. Small swimming pool. More Hostel, than hotel, but very good for the price.
