Pros: renovated toilets and sinks, lots of washrooms, towels provided, well-stocked kitchen, large dining area Cons: very creaky bunk bed, shower is not a continuous stream of water, shower water pools instantly, need more bowls in the kitchen, slippery stairs

Room was clean and warmed quickly, stayed 2 nights in end of December. I booked a private room, was a very basic room (as expected for the price, which I didn't mind), size of a closet. Smaller than a twin bed. If your looking to save money and just need a place to sleep, this is the place. You can hear people in the hallway, I'm a heavy sleeper so it didnt bother me. Only stayed there to sleep since I was out exploring the beautiful area.

A great inexpensive overnight stay.
Super nice reception, very pleasant! Room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Stayed in a two twin bed room. Showers, bathrooms on main floor have all been remodeled. Pleasantly surprised about the stay, more than I expected for the price. We also cooked dinner in the well-stocked guest kitchen.

Lacks sound proofing, toilets are a hike!
Our room was on the top floor, and the toilets were a long way from the room down several sets of stairs. There was also a lot of noise between the rooms, which was not caused by others being particularly noisy, just poor sound insulation. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a large dining room. The showers were modern hot and clean, although you had to walk through the boot area to get the showers.

Old building. Very thin walls that you get disturbed by any noise in the corridor or ground floor. Only 4 showers and 4 WC for the whole hostel.
