One of those hostels that tries to fit in as many people as possible. Results are small rooms with almost no storage for luggage and the few sanitary facilities are poorly maintained. Bring some oil because the squeaking of almost every door will get on your nerves quite soon.

Very easy to book and a good location. Staff welcoming and accommodating: was able to store bike downstairs in cellar. If secure bike storage could always be guaranteed then I'd give 5 stars. Lounge area roomy and a good environment to relax in. Kitchen well equipped and clean.

We stayed for one night and found the hostel to be clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and although the hostel was fully booked it didn't feel full. Although there seemed to be only 3 toilets & showers we didn't have to wait for the facilities once, to be fair we also left early in the am. We booked... More

There are about 35 beds per toilet, staff were nowhere to be found, the hooks for the showers were all broken, toilets wouldn't flush. We decided to leave early due to all of this, the staff claimed we would be refunded, this hasn't been done yet.

Most confortable bed of the trip. But, there were only like 3 showers and 3 toilets for the 10 bedrooms so we waited a lot before going in. Kitchen is very cute, as the common room. We met some really nice people. However, even if the staff is nice, the owner is really really rude (red hair woman). She yelled... More

This hostel was not to bad if you are just looking for a bed. The room was decent enough although there were not enough lockers for everybody in the room. However!!! Considering there was s large amount of guests in this hostel there are NOT enough showers to accommodate everybody and it's even worse when some are already out of... More

Nice hostel in more or less central area and walkable from train station. Room was clean and comfortable, however nowhere near enough pòwerpoints for an 8 bed dorm! Nice common room and kitchen, friendly guy on reception. Would stay again, very good price.

We stayed here for 2 nights, and found the experience pleasant. The first impressions were poor, however. Upon ringing the bell, a lady answered and buzzed us in. However, the door would not open despite my best efforts. To my disgust, the lady (it's perhaps flattering to call her a lady; she'll be referred to as the manager from hereon)... More

Awful attitude and service from lady running the hostel. Rude and aggressive during our whole stay! Not right person for the job. Location is good and hostel was clean but presence of manager made stay very unenjoyable.

I stayed here for four nights, this place is literally half a minute walk to the bus station, at most 2 minutes walk to the train station and 5 minutes walk to the Victorian Market (if you're a slow walker like I am). It is cleaned everyday, the rooms, the kitchen and lounge and it is a cozy little place.... More
