    We stayed here for one night. The hostel is in the centre of town and a good location. Being 2 storey the floors and stairs are very noisy. With so many rooms people walking around all night was hard to sleep

    We haven't stayed at too many hostels before this, but this one was definitely worth it! Great value, comfy room and bed, super clean washrooms (even though they were shared), quick walk to the restaurants, friendly reception, and bonus free breakfast! Would definitely recommend!

    I'd suggest emailing or calling them? I don't think you can expect them to pick up on a TripAdvisor question?
