Me and my friend are both from the UK and are 20 years old. We only stayed there for three nights and I think it was the ideal place for our age and the amount of time we stayed.

From midnight to 5am is quiet, but before and after, it is very noisy. Poor water pressure in the shower,... More

I stayed here for about two weeks in April and returned for another couple day at the end of my trip. I stayed in a single room. It was simple, but quite clean. I had no complaints!

A good hostel with a great location,and a good team that strives to provide a good atmosphere. Great friendly staff that are willing to go the extra mile like for example helping with CVs and other such services. The only slight criticism is that the toilets are in need of renovation although they are still clean
