Had a private room and it seemed okay from the outlook but the beds were so uncomfy, it was a brand new bathroom and it leaked!!! Staff weren't that helpful and seemed abit rude, was not worth the money at all and the kitchen was vile, along with the cups from which I got ill from them

This hostel is basic & could be cleaner. Rooms are not that spacious although we did get a free upgrade to a smaller dorm. There is also no shuttle to the greyhound so we had to pay for train fares & walk. Good location being in the valley at weekends but not much happening during the week. 20mins walk into... More

The hostel as itself is ok. You get towel, soap and clean room. However, I would have one important comment: If somebody looks for a place to SLEEP them I would strongly discourage you. Simply: it is loud. I am referring here precisely to the sleeping area. I have no problem with fact that there is disco at the ground... More

Hi and thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry you had to listen to people having fun in the hallways, one of our friendly staff members would have happily dealt with them had we known they were disrupting your stay. We hope you come and stay with us again soon. Love BUNK xxx More

We are currently stayin' here at Bunks and its a good hostel if you are the party type. Pros: cheap bar. $3 beer and cider. Free shuttle bus from bus station, large kitchen. The dorms are smart with 'walls' in the middle of the room so they dont look so big. (8 beds) Cons: the beds sounds alot when you... More

We were overall impressed with Bunk, good location for nightlife and modern, well-equipped and social hostel. However, beware of the 'Jungle' dorms, the 10 and 20 bed 'temporary' dorms used mainly for guests who are staying for 1 or 2 nights. These rooms are cramped, have no air con, and aren't much cheaper than the nicer 6 or 8 bed... More

1.On their website the hostel should make it more clearly that it is a party hostel and they would only shut down their music at 4 am in the morning. 2. Two windows were broken and only after 5 days of reminders someone came to repair them. 5 days of more noise and cold evenings!! 3. After I had told... More

Booked for 3 nights for the 20 bed mixed dorm and got upgraded for free for 8 bed mixed dorm ensuite. Free breakfast, a tons of info regarding what to see, you might be able to ask for special rate if you stay for a long time (a week or more). Definitely recommend it!
