Stayed a few days, room with clean sheets and enough space for a big luggage or two. Real nice people and great location making it easy to walk around the city and party at night (the reception gives earplugs for the noise of the club downstairs - mostly in the weekend, otherwise it is pretty quiet). No stealing that I... More

Very nice hostel in the centre of the city. Reception is open 24h. There is a big kitchen and common area. It is clean and confortable, but since it stands right next to a pub, during weekends there is a lot of noise till late night.

It's good place for my last two nights there, very central, but if you want a quiet place it's not for you especially on Friday and Saturday night. The music from the pub below blast through the entire building. Overall, it's fun place to stay.

Nice staff with nice managers who always want to improve their hostel and to propose trips and parties for... More

We stayed on a Saturday night over the bank holiday - the staff was super friendly and helpful. The club night goes on pretty late so it was really loud and hard to sleep because of that, but everyone in our 12-bed dorm was very considerate when it came to coming in and out during the night. The location is... More

My friend and I stayed two nights at the Rock 'n Bowl. We loved the central location and facilities the hostel had, fun place to hang out. Great vibes in the kitchen at night. Reception staff were always fantastic, with a smile. Request an upper floor room if you want to stay closer to the showers.

The friendly staff at the Rock 'n Bowl do everything they can to provide a quality experience at an affordable price. The cleaning crews never stop, outstanding issues are attended to quickly and with a good heart. The kitchen is clean and well-equipped and the spacious lounge has plenty of space for chilling out or using the Internet, although reception... More
