Good experience
Overall cleanliness was very good. The men's bathroom on the 2nd floor had one of two stools out of order my entire 2 day stay but did not present a 'personal' problem. ;)

More privacy would be great.
It’s a great overnight stay if you are just there to sleep! I stayed 3 nights and overall my experience was good. It needs some more privacy, maybe some curtains on the bed so the people doesn’t stare at you while your are sleeping. I stayed in some hostel that had some like curtains on the bunk beds and it gives you more privacy. Loud music till 12am maybe later than that, if you sleep early you may encounter some trouble there, since they have a bar and the music it’s loud.
