I stayed in the Eyes room which is a female dorm. It had 8 beds and ensuite showers + toilet. It's not the cheapest hostel in the world but it's not expensive either. Upon arrival, check in is very easy, the staff are very nice and welcoming. You are given a code for the main room and the main gate...
