I stayed in the Travel Joy hostel for 4 days with some friends in June 2014 and it was by the far the best hostel we've stayed at during our travels. There are 4 main reasons why: 1) Staff: this was probably the best part of our stay. They were friendly, positive and very helpful. Staff members Filippo and Mel... More

I stayed at Travel Joy Hostel for three nights. As it was my first time in a hostel, and traveling alone I expected to be incredibly lost and scared, but the staff was very friendly and helpful with directions, helping me with luggage, and providing me with whatever else I needed. Collect maps, brochures, and anything else you may need... More

I have stayed at this hostel on two separate occasions in May and June 2014 and have thoroughly enjoyed both times. Staff were always friendly and helpful, room and bathroom clean and liveable. Loved the lolly bowl at the reception desk. The street side can be noisy in the mornings, I was able to sleep through that comfortably but it... More

A group of 12 Ladies stayed here to Moonwalk in May 2014. We had the room with six bunk beds which was fab. It didn't feel crowded and there was plenty of room for storing belongings inc. valuables in lockers. The toilets were upstairs again which was fine until after we'd completed the moonwalk. We had a friendly greeting and... More

This is a hidden gem! For a very reasonable price, you get great service, a clean room, clean bathroom and facilities, and free drinks plus a full-featured breakfast. This is as good as it gets as far as hostels go. Having stayed in many hostels across Europe, this is by far one of the best.
