You can contact the hostel directly and let them know your ETA. They might have your beds available when you arrive and let you check in early. If they don’t just ask if you can drop off your bags and return later for check... More

Unfortunetly, I don't remember. If I'm not mistaken it was the third floor, actually, It was a 1 floor above the luggage room. There's an individual bathroom in the second floor (or the floor below mine). If you go around... More
