There are several dorm rooms with four or seven beds, depending on the size of the room. They don't feel overly crowded at all. The lockers in the rooms are spacious for small backpacks and valuables (you must leave a deposit for the locker key). There are some lockers in the hallway as well.
There is only one shared shower for the dorm rooms. Some dorm rooms have a bathroom in the room. However, if you don't plan well for your shower, you may need to wait for a long time. The whole hostel is orderly and very well kept daily. The bathroom, shower, and toilets are spotlessly clean.
