Start off saying the location for this hostel is brilliant its central as the name says... however this is the dirtiest place I've stayed in there was a smell of sick in the room later to find the actual stain where the sick had been still clearly visible. At dinner I had to go and buy plastic forks from a... More

Me and my girlfriend booked in for 3 nights here whilst travelling down the coast. I hate to leave bad reviews but this is the most disgusting place I have ever stepped foot in. The staff, give them there due, are friendly and helpful. However the actual accommodation is horrendous. We were given a 'room' on the 3rd floor. The... More

The hostel has potential to be a great place to stay. Location is good and prices are reasonable too. The staff all seem very happy to help but the actual building is completely destroyed. They say it is under refurbishment but there are little signs of this, and really should have been done years ago! Our room holds 6 people,... More

It's 28 degrees Celsius at midnight and the air conditioning facility isn't working. Worst of all, I can't even get the staff to bring me a fan. How foolish was I to pay for a room which sitting still makes me sweating like hell. Never come to this hostel ever.

Stayed 2 nights in a moldy and smelly 4 bed room without functional air condition. The kitchen was alright, the hostel pub was good and the staff seemed fine but the room was awful. And so was the bathroom. There were parties all night in the hostel which is great, if you're the one who's partying. A friend did not... More

I stayed here 2 nights and that was enough time to spend there. Hostel needs full renovation, carpeting were so dirty, toilets were broken and everything was so old-fashioned. We had a private room and the smell was so bad, so we had to ask another room. Gladly they had another room for us which was better. The room was... More

I've been travelling for years, I always stay in hostels & this is probably the only hostel ever I would never DREAM of going back to. I've worked in numerous hostels across the world & therefore understand that things can get a little dirty & noise levels are IMPOSSIBLE to control (although they didn't give a damn about noise levels...

I hated this hostel. It was very dirty, the bathroom aint got any privacy. The washing machines didnt work and rip your clothes. The building is too old. Just don't go there. And it's very noisy, full of young people who wants to party. So if you need to sleep. Good luck
