    This is a pretty average hostel. It's clean, the nightly rate is fair, the beds are pretty comfortable (but they don't have power outlets, which was really inconvenient). The kitchen is large and well-stocked, and there's free make-you-own pancakes in the morning. However, you need...More

    even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
