    We stayed in a family room (which is right opposite the kitchen??). Noisiest hostel I have ever stayed in. Kitchen is generally dirty and people don’t appear to respect the rules. Room itself was good - great size for us.

    Good for the price! In a private room but walls a little thin so can be noisy.
