Hostel stay
My first time staying in a hostel and it wasn’t too bad. You obviously get what you pay for. If you’re looking for mod cons and an ultra cool hotel or something luxurious, this won’t be for you. However, if you want a nice cheap place to get your head down in a fairly good location then it’s Perfect. No real problems as I knew what I was getting when staying here, the only real issue I had were the noise of some kind of generator and the bed is extremely uncomfortable. That’s the only complaints I had.
