A good hostel
It's pretty confortable for a hostel. The beds are comfy and have their own light and plugs. The bathroom is a bit weird, kinda far from the room and mixed (there isn't a female bathroom). The kitchen is big, and there are a few places where you can chill. The staff are kind. There's a (paid) parking lot right in front of the hostel, it's very easy to get there.
