Hostel is generally OK if you don't expect luxury. Dorms are very big, the beds are comfortable. Great location! Sadly, there was no lockers. There is only one bathroom per floor, with two showers - expect queues in the evening! The breakfast is small but tasty. It was pretty noisy in the hostel on the saturday night, but hey -... More

First contact with Reception staff excellent. Helpful above and beyond duties (offering to get me his own iron if I needed). The Apartment I rented was period in style, gorgeous. Fits in lovely with the neighbourhood. As the road outside is not a through road - It's very quiet all day & night. The apartment came with everything a traveller... More

The buildins is very nice, as well as the common room downstairs. The room we booked was a double ensuite. It was absolutely spartan: one bed, one chair. Nothing else, not even a picture on the wall. The bathroom was also extremely small and spartan, with horrible green tiles. If it's just for sleeping it's ok, really no frills. The... More

This was our second stay at Eccles Court, in the apartments next door to the hostel. This time we took our son, daughter and their significant others. We each had our own apartment at 70 EURO per night as we stayed one week. Since we were there in 2004, the bathrooms appear to be updated. Hot water whenever we wanted... More

We stayed in this hostel in January 2005 on our little 'Round Trip' including Wales, Dublin and a bit of England. The photos on the website looked ok, the prices were fine so we booked it. For two nights. Our room looked nothing like the rooms in the picture. The staff were not friendly nor were they unfriendly. They were... More

I stayed here with a group of friends for a rugby international weekend. The staff weren't terribly friendly, but they weren't bad either. The room was fine - spacious, but there were a few funny stains on the curtains/bedlinen. Didn't bother us really as we didn't spend much time in the rooms. Shower was much more powerful than expected, although... More

Not a bad place. The location was pretty good. Not the best hostel I've stayed at - SHOWERS ARE HORRIBLE. Other than that, everything was fine.

Possibly one of the worst hostels on the planet, and I've stayed in some dives! The place is filthy from the carpet to the ceiling. The mattresses look as if they were found in a skip outside a prison. The place hasn't been cleaned in a long long time. The showers are pathetic, and anyone can walk in off the... More

We stayed here in our own room as a couple and the best part about the place was leaving it. Some of the staff are nice but some just stare and frown. The room was filthy and there was mould in the bathroom. When it started raining heavy, our room leaked in the morning. We also had to climb 88... More
