1) The bunk beds are not good- that older, cheap type with a thin metal frame, where the ladder is awkward painful to climb with bare feet. I hated sleeping on the top with my face right next to the window, especially as the curtain wouldn't pull across all the way. 2) No elevator- it is very difficult to be on the top floor when you have heavy luggage, and those stairs are pretty steep. 3) Very small lockers. You will be in trouble if you have big items or loads of valuables. 4) If you're a HI member, don't book a bed here through Booking.com. I am a HI member- usually when book a room through this website, they quote the member's price and state that you will pay a few dollars extra per night upon check-in if you do not have a HI membership card. When checking in and presenting my HI card here, I was informed that this cannot be taken into account. I checked online later and realised I had paid more through Booking.com than I would have if I had booked directly with the hostel, or using the HI website. BE WARNED.
1) I think most people would agree that the best feature of the hostel is the main kitchen/living area, which is cosy, comfortable, and attractive. 2) Good security. 3) Nice bathrooms 4) Overall decent facilities. 5) Location is great. 6) Charging facilities with (small!) lockers in room.
