Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I only stayed one night in a private room. Had to go down one floor to heat food. Was a well stocked kitchen with anything you might need to cook a full meal. But for the price of a private room should at least have a microwave other than that my stay was pleasant

I don’t think the sheets were changed after we got into our room. My husband actually took picture of blanket which was full of hair and showed it to the front desk. The staff came and gave us some clean sheets. I stayed this hostel when it was newly opened years ago, which It was very clean at that time. It is very disappointing!
