Hostel stay
My first time staying in a hostel and it wasnโ€™t too bad. You obviously get what you pay for. If youโ€™re looking for mod cons and an ultra cool hotel or something luxurious, this wonโ€™t be for you. However, if you want a nice cheap place to get your head down in a fairly good location then itโ€™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. Thatโ€™s the only complaints I had.
