As far as city hostels go, this one is not bad at all. The front desk staff are very welcoming and helpful. If might be a bit of a longish walk to the city center - (we used the hop on hop off bus to get us there). Because it's out of the city it's very quiet, good for getting... More

My husband and I stayed here in May, 2014. We were very pleased with our stay. The location is convenient and the view on the upper level rooms are lovely! We were surprisingly impressed with the cafe food as well! This is one of the nicer hostels we've stayed in.

Have stayed in many hostels in Europe, and NONE can compare to this hostel! On arrival, members of staff were very warm and welcoming! I was really surprised by the high standards of this hostel (comfy beds, lovely lounge area & fully kitted out kitchen), and really could not have asked for anymore! Very clean, accommodating place to stay in... More

I stayed in the 12 bed mixed dorm and it was average. Very little space and ended up sleeping with our bags on our top bunks (the cages underneath kept catching our bags and we couldn't slide them in). Large dorms always depend on your roommates and unfortunately many of mine were loud at night (not the hostel's fault obviously... More

Impersonal atmosphere, cleanliness is more important than the customers comfort, super small and bad equipped kitchen, unhelpful stuff, poor breakfast -> and: don't do the laundry there - two socks (of two pairs) were missing.. ok for one night.

Dear guest, I should tell you the missing socks turned up under the bed in the room you were staying. The hostel staff work hard to keep the hostel clean and tidy for the comfort of guests. I can't imagine anyone wanting to stay in a dirty bed. Sorry you felt that the cleanliness was more important than your comfort... More

I stayed at this hostel during the Giro d'Italia on the 9th, 10th and 11th of May. The hostel was fully booked but it still had a cozy feeling. Free breakfast is included, kitchen and other common rooms are great, with a large flat screen TV hanging in the front living room of the house. Rooms are good as well... More

I stayed here on a Thursday night, while waiting for my friends to catch up from Dublin. I arrived as planned although fairly soggy and was checked in and shown my room with no fuss. I was out most of the evening and when I got back went straight to bed, in my nice comfy bed. Sheets were clean, bathroom... More
