    The breakfast was well served. The recepcionists very considerate too, they let us take shower before the check-in. It was the only hostel I stayed in my Eurotrip that had curtains around the bed and I thought the best idea ever! And the fact that you can choose taking a shower inside the room or outside by the halls is also great.

    I missed plugs next to the bed and an area to leave my things while I was in the shower.

    the best thing i like about the hostel is that the beds have curtains! they provided much-needed privacy. the facilities are all pretty clean, also the bed doesn't shake so much despite having double bunks. the hostel is located on the south bank, just so everyone knows (because i wasn't aware of it lol)

    in the room i stayed in, there was not any electricity outlet on the second night, so the whole room couldn't charge our phones and everything else, but there was no compensation or alternatives from the hostel, a bit disappointed.
