Sadly, their website didn't work when I tried to book. Also, my friend's room wasn't very clean, it was on the 4th floor and I don't think they cleaned that room at all. My room on the other hand was very clean and nice. Great breakfast! Showers are nice aswell and the kitchen is perfect. The staff is very helpful...

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us, Sara. We always enjoy having visitors from around the world, and it was great having you. Sorry for the confusion with our website and for your friend's room -- we usually sweep all the rooms and make sure they are clean, so there must've been a miscommunication.

We went here on holiday from the UK and had timed it to coincide with spring break. The hostel had something on every night and every night was great fun. There was one exception to this where one member of the hostel staff left us at a rubbish bar on our final night. We did meet a lot of people...
