Met our needs for one night.
This hostel offered the largest rooms of all the hostels that we stayed at. Ours had a bathroom that was shared with the neighboring guests. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The breakfast was basic but sufficient and started quite early in the morning, which is fantastic for anyone who has an early morning flight.
