Provided what we needed.
I have never stayed in a hostel before. I have to say my experience was good. I did not have high expectations. Room was clean bed comfortable. Shared toilet and showers ok. Shared kitchens ok, a little rough around the edges. Comfortable large light and airy living room. Mixture of travellers, ourselves visiting grandchildren, simple and straightforward meeting anxiety greeting.

Rooms were warm, clean and basic. Walls were thin so you could hear people talking quite cleary. The door lock didn't feel secure, asked reception if someone could look at it but was flimsy and did not make for a good nights sleep. It is a good location but wouldn't stay there again.

Nice hostel in a quiet part of town. Free parking after 5:30pm. Although the public areas and kitchen were tired, the private room and bathroom were in good condiction. Really good value fpr money given hotel prices in the City.
