          Can anyone tell me the day of the week/time/month you were able to get in this hostel? There are three of us and we'll be arriving Sunday afternoon the last weekend of February.

          We arrived with three people in mid February during the week around noon and it was no problem to get a bed in a dorm. It's a great place!
