Really good location, good price, nice service, really comfortable beds, clean, good design. Really good nightlife, they have other coffee's then they give you some offers. You need take your towell and your lock for you locker.

Stayed here for my stag trip with 9 other friends. We had 2 rooms that slept 4 and 2 twin rooms, all were clean with en-suite and a safe for valuables. Great location, great staff and rooms perfect for what we needed. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and will definitely stay again when we're back in town.

First night we stayed there till about 4.30am drinking with the bar staff, they were fab! It's right in the centre of everything. When you get off the plane just... More

Couple in early 20s, stayed for 2 nights, staff are very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Arrived too early to check in but we were allowed to securely store our luggage and chill out in the lounge bar for a drink, smoke, and bite to eat whilst we waited. Despite the bar remaining open til 4am, the room was surprisingly quiet... More

I've stayed in the bulldog apartments many times over the past 13 years since I fell for Holland. The staff are helpful and welcoming and the price is very reasonable for such a central location. Breakfast is even included when you rent an apartment! I'll be planning my next trip asap.

I went to the historical Bulldog coffee shop first and was told that the hostel is in a different location and the security guy helped point it out on the map. There are a few Bulldog locations and it was confusing getting to the right one. Once I did, it was a very easy check in and they offered me... More

This hostel is OK for a couple of nights, centrally located, good bar/lounge and a good atmosphere. Rooms are quite large and spacious, however the toilet/shower in each room was tiny!. I would stay here again if I was only in the city for a couple of nights, but for a longer trip I would suggest looking elsewhere.
