I had a bad experience here. They had overbooked themselves and I was told that I was lucky to get a room at all. The room did not have an en suite which meant that we (my girlfriend and I) had to use a communal bathroom which was horrible. Not a chance I was going to shower there never mind... More

Let's begin by saying we have slept in many hostels around the world and all I generally look for is a place to sleep, decent and clean. This to say we are not that fancy. Well, the only true thing to say here is: STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE! We had a booking for two night (Sat and Sun), we... More

Ok, I have to disagree with most of the statements here. My boyfriend and I booked a double room with private bathroom in this hostel and were very happy with it. Our room and the sheets were clean and we had a TV. The bathroom with shower was not the newest but clean as well. Unfortunately it had no window... More

I arrived at midnight and tried several other places nearby who wanted 80 to 90 Euros (O'Sheas, Jacobs) so when told that a single room en suite was 50 Euros was cheered up. Receptionist was a nice guy from Brazil. I slept well. Went to kitchen and some Polish dosser was smoking with the door ajar talking about buying drugs.... More

Okay so this review is going to be pretty easy to write- in a nutshell DO NOT STAY HERE....EVER!!!!! We arrived to a foreign receptionist who asked us to look in his "booking in" log book for our reference as his English was not great and handed us a key saying "go into the room slowly as I'm not sure...

Check in was a nightmare. There are two buildings. Their booking system is all on paper. The credit card machine was broken. My room was underground and noisy. To their credit, there is 24 hour reception and check out was easy. I won't be staying again.

This is a horrendous place to stay. Everything was dirty. I think that someone had pooed on our curtains. The picture in the room had graffiti on that said 'Evil was here', and it is true. DO NOT STAY HERE. The shared bathroom is like a dungeon, and we had to move rooms as they had double booked us. The... More

Having travelled around the world, myself and my husband (who are Irish) had to make a brief stop in the capital of our hme country. Having stayed in numerous hostels in 3rd world country's - this was without doubt the absolute worst. It smelled, was dirty, falling apart and simply discusting. The owner (who we were advised is Irish) should... More
