Quaint, good for a couple days
This hostel was bustling while I was there. The staff is friendly though I’m sure they’re all other travelers so it felt a little scattered at times. The single room was decent - bed was more comfortable than expected and plenty of space for a solo traveler. The shower situation, however, was unique - a wet room with no vent! The water got plenty hot with good pressure though. I appreciate the layers of security to get to the rooms. I would stay again. The breakfast was a bit lacking but not terrible. They have a water spout for filling up bottles in the bar area.

Very fun :)
It was very FUN! the rooms were in ok shape (I had a private room, it was dated but as expected for the price, location and being a hostel) , the lobby area was very clean and nice. Please note that early check in is not a thing there though.
