We stayed in the private dorm to avoid sleepless nights. Unfortunately 4 of the 5 nights we were woken up at 2 - 3am by other guests who were either talking/yelling loudly in common areas or in their rooms. As other reviewers have mentioned, the hostel is filled with long term residents who treat it as their own home. The kitchen is in the centre of the hostel and close to all rooms. This is a poor design, especially with late night inconsiderate guests. Small things such as wet tea towels and broken appliances really broke the camels back.
