The Facilities

Dorm Bed $18.12

The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean, and the rooms stay pretty quiet. There are also small lockers available where you can put your valuables.
Private Rooms
Private Room $24.92
If you want a little more space to yourself, you can choose a twin or double private room. These rooms are a lot like basic hotel rooms. You can also choose between rooms with shared or attached bathrooms. If you're in a hurry to get at in the morning, it can be worth getting a room with an en-suite as you won't have to wait for the shower.
The bathrooms are clean and reliable. There are two bathrooms per floor, which can be a bit annoying in the morning when things get crowded, but if you shower at other times there won't be a problem.
Common Areas
There isn't a ton of space to hang out in this hostel, but there is a dining area with tables and a couple of places to sit.
