My friends and I stayed here halfway through our East Coast trip. It's relatively modern and was clean. Had a cafe available for breakfast. We stayed in the largest dorm, it was fine. Plenty of power points.

I’ve been travelling the entire world and I need to say that this is this most comfortable, clean, organised, friendly and in the best conditions ever. I could easily spend more time there, because the living areas are big

Perfect hostal in service. Friendly and fast Check-In. Party-room and Lounge with big TV-Screen and nice videos. Rooms and beds are clean, also toilets and bathroom. Nice and friendly guests, sometimes loud, but party! Less minutes to go to the each and all other facilities.
